The Wonders Beneath the Waves

Diving in Unawatuna

The waters that border Unawatuna’s beaches harbour an amazing variety of natural beauty and biodiversity – the best way to get up-close and experience all this wonder is to dive right in! Diving in Unawatuna is one of the best things to do here in Sri Lanka’s South Coast, so don’t pass up on the opportunity during your stay here at the Araliya Beach Resort and Spa.

The coral reefs that fringe Unawatuna’s shoreline will be your first stop. These are complex ecosystems that provide a refuge for some of the most beautiful, fascinating and downright bizarre creatures found on the planet. As you explore the reefs, you’ll come across colourful denizens like the parrotfish and the reclusive moray eel. Get lucky and you might even catch a glimpse of the rare and exotic sea turtles that are known to frequent these waters!

Keep in mind that diving is a somewhat tricky affair and you’ll need adequate training before jumping into the depths of the ocean. Luckily, there’s plenty of diving schools to be found here in the South Coast including one at our resort itself!
