Unawatuna beach to galle

Hi can anyone tell me if it's practical to travel from the beach at Unawatuna to galle by tuk tuk? If so, about much would it cost and how long would it take?

Thanks

10 mins or so. 5-6 kms. may be LKR 300-400.If you come to A2 main road enough buses to Galle for LKR 20.

Have done the journey myself by tuk tuk, although do not remember the price. As mentioned above only about 6 kms so will be reasonable cheap fare.

Tuks will ask for 500 offer 300 and expect to meet in the middle at 400. Same returning. That's if you are down beach road in unawatuna. If you are on the main road 300 is the price to aim for b you are on the main road just hop on the bus. They are regular fast and cheap.

Thank you for all your replies. Yes we will be down by the beach and will keep the prices in mind. Any tips to see in galle apart from the fort?

Any ideas gratefully received!

Tuk tuk distance by main road. Or take a bus from main road (towards Galle) and exit near Holcim cement factory then take a tuk tuk.
