Where to Stay in Unawatuna (And Where Not to)

In Unawatuna I stayed at three different guest houses. Yes, you read that right, THREE! In five days. Here I’m going to explain why. Plus I will briefly review each one and share useful info like prices and booking. I have not been compensated for writing any of the following reviews: all my opinions are, […]

Is Mirissa Really All It’s Cracked Up To Be?

Where to Stay in Habarana

Before I left for Sri Lanka I did plenty of research about where to stay in Habarana and where to stay in Sri Lanka in general, because I knew that we would be booking accommodation as we went along rather than in advance.
