Secret Beach Mirissa, is a small hidden beach with a bay area just around the corner of the town’s main beach, Mirissa Beach. Although Secret Beach is no longer much of a secret (and even has its location on google maps!) it should definitely be on your list of places to visit in Mirissa. While the beach has gained more popularity in recent years, it still doesn’t attract as many visitors as the main beach, and so it is still somewhat of a hidden gem.
Three Distinct Features
The best thing about Secret Beach is its surroundings; the beach is nestled in a cove and flanked by small hills covered in lush green palm trees on either side which creates a number of smaller beaches. Secret Beach consists of three smaller beaches: Blue Lagoon, this is right in front of the beach and is a tidal rock pool which is perfect for a lazy swim; Palm Cove, found on the left of Blue Lagoon, it is a wonderful snorkelling location, a place where the jungle meets the sea; Shelly Beach is made of a series of rock pools and even has a blowhole.
A Beach with Great Activities to Indulge In
Secret Beach is undoubtedly a must-visit when in Mirissa. This one location has so much to offer from swimming to snorkelling to just lazing by the beach. Also, Sri Lanka is home to five out of seven sea turtles in the world who frequent the southern waters, so keep your eyes peeled while snorkelling!
