Looking at the beach shots below, you’d be forgiven thinking that this is a collection of some of the best beaches I saw during my 2 weeks in Sri Lanka. But I cycled just 31 km today – and all the photos below are from the little ride.

Needless to say, it was absolutely stunning cycling!

Unawatuna Beach. I reached this spot early in the day, and thought I’d be going much further along the coast today, but I just couldn’t leave this fabulous beach, so I checked in to a little guesthouse for the night. The joys of spontaneity when bike touring. Solo.
