Wijaya Beach (Dalawella Beach)

Wijaya Beach - Sri Lanka
© Samal Nadeeshan

Wijaya Beach is located on the Galle Coast of Sri Lanka, not far from Unawatuna. The laid back nature of this place makes it a favorite among locals, tourists, and expats alike. And the beach won’t disappoint with its clean, white-sand beach and backdrop of coconut palms leaning over the clear blue water.

There is a coral reef that forms something of a sheltered natural pool where people often swim. This is also a place to spot turtles of all sizes which come into the shallows towards either end of the day. You can either swim with them or try and spot them as they scamper in and out of the water.

No matter how you plan to spend your time here, you should make sure that you dine outside in the evening to catch one of the incredible sunsets. With accommodation right on the beach you can stay here at Wijaya Beach, or just come for the day.
