Bridge across the lagoon
I’m in Tangalle. It’s not Unawatuna and further south than Mirissa, so presumably cooler. It’s beautiful here, lush paddy on one side, lagoons and clear ocean on the other. The shelf drops and the sea is treacherous, but behind the rocks there are eddies of delight. The sea is clear and the blue green waves play with you without pulling you under.
Staying at the Lagoon Paradise, about 2000 a night ($20). Food is a bit expensive, but quite nice besides.
Tourists, mostly French, reading and boating
