Located just northwest of the beach at Unawatuna, Jungle Beach is a tiny, semi-hidden bay surrounded by jungle. A coral reef is located just a few meters out from the beach. The reef and snorkeling begin only 30 feet away from the beach, directly in front. The reef at Jungle Beach is basically dead, however, you'll still encounter plenty of small marine life. You can also snorkel around the rocks on both sides of the bay, but beware of waves pushing you too close to the sharp edges. Under normal conditions, the current isn't an issue. Waves typically aren't sizable at Jungle Beach, but always be mindful of the basic safety rules for snorkeling. Along with schools of colorful fish and reef dwellers, you may also encounter crabs, moray eels, trigger fish, parrot fish, barracudas, and maybe even a turtle.
