Polhena Beach/ Turtle Beach
One of the most stunning southern coast beaches, Turtle Beach is situated 7 km from Mirissa. The calm, shallow bay is the permanent habitat of 15 turtles. Enjoy snorkeling at the waves-protected beach and soak in the thrilling experience of swimming with the turtles. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll find the chance to see a baby released on the beach hatchery.
A large rock at the end of Mirissa Bay, Parrot Rock delivers you stunning views of Mirissa Beach. Swim and snorkel in the calm area and enjoy the peacefulness in the rock pools below.
Coconut Tree Hill
A small hill rich in Coconut trees can provide a perfect and beautiful frame for Instagram shots. Coconut Tree Hill is a popular spot to witness the sunset; however, don’t expect a romantic, calm sunset experience as it’s an almost busy and populated spot. A friendly piece of advice: early morning before sunrise is the least busy time to relax and watch the ocean on yourself. Just make sure to watch out for coconuts falling down.
