I recently had a few days off and decided to do a last minute getaway for two to the beautiful beaches of Unawatuna in Sri Lanka. It was my first time in Sri Lanka and i have heard so much about it, so i had to go check it out.
We decided to choose Unawatuna for our short vacation. It is is about a 2 hours drive away from Colombo and is great for its stunning beaches, hotels and good food.
My Top 5 things about Sri Lanka
The Main Beach
If you follow my Instagram @UrbanEnzo, you will know how much i love the ocean. The beach here at Unawatuna is a vibe, with yellow sand and over 10 restruarants that come alive at night with good music and drinks…. really good drinks. Sunsets here are not to be missed.
Turtles At The Hatchery
Now this is something you don’t do often. With a short tuk-tuk ride, you can visit the turtle hatchery in Habaraduwa.
A Visit To Jungle Beach
Jungle Beach is a hidden beach that is a must-see. Take a tuk-tuk to reach the top of the hill and follow the rocky foot-path down the hill to access this hidden gem. Watch out for the monkeys.
Locations To Shoot At
I love visiting places that are filled with awesome locations for me to shoot. Sri Lanka gives you beach when you need it and rustic backdrops that are perfect for those Instagram shots. Let your camera go wild.
The Ease Of Getting There
Getting a Visa is quick and easy. Apply for your Sri Lanka visa online at www.eta.gov.lk. Do so a few days before your arrival and it should get approved in less than 48 hours. The 30-day visa will cost you $30 and can only be paid by credit card.
Until the next adventure!
