Unawatuna among CNN's world's best 100 beaches


CNN has named Unawatuna among its world's best 100 beaches.

It can't be easy being a standout beach in a country of awesome beaches, but Unawatuna does it, CNN said.

Hanging off the southern tip of Sri Lanka, it stretches for more than a mile, and is marked by palm trees, thatch huts and a languid pace.

Many international travel magazines refer to beauty of Unawatuna beach.

"Following a trip to Colombo's treasure trove markets, you can unwind on the heavenly stretch of Unawatuna Beach. Palm trees tower over the silk-like sand and the aqua sea breaks rhythmically as you relax with a cocktail or traditional Sri Lankan tea from the hillside plantations," UK-based Hello! Magazine said in a report published in 2011.
