Coconut Tree Hill
An Amazing Viewing Point
Just a 15-minute walk from Mirissa Beach you will find Coconut Tree Hill, a small coconut tree far atop a hillock. The hill has perhaps become the most Instagrammed spot in Mirissa and it’s easy to see why; the whole hill looks over to the gorgeous turquoise ocean and it is covered by tall coconut trees swaying in the sea breeze. At the centre of the peak there is an area of cleared land and this is where you can get that perfect shot of you in a coconut grove with the sparkling Indian Ocean behind you.
How You Can Reach the Hill
Coconut Tree Hill has a central location, so you can get there either by getting dropped on the main road and then climbing the hill (which only takes about two minutes), or you can walk along the beach. Since it is an easy location to get to, it’s not too laborious and it doesn’t require you to hike or anything, makes this an easy activity for the whole family. The hill is exceptionally beautiful during sunset, but it also tends to be more crowded during this time. If you’re looking for a more romantic and intimate ambience, try and make it to the top of the hill as that is truly spectacular.
