There's nothing special about this beach, and it's definitely not a secret! It's off the beaten track, so a little difficult to get to - but signposts all the way (no secrecy). The beach consists of broken coral, not nice soft sand. You really need...More

Follow the hand-painted signs from the harbor. It's a lovely up and down walk that is only spoiled by the heat. Once there, there's a small sandy cove to one side for swimming and a rocky cove to the other with a sandy strip to...More

Cute little beach quite far from Mirissa beach, not a must see but if you want to take a walk you might as well. Swimming, beaches and restaurants are better in Mirissa and this place is still quite crowded.

My review is about the location not this restaurant. You can’t here - look at the pics; so many rocks etc. we were so disappointed when we arrived and wasted a good hour + money on a tuk tuk getting here. Give it a miss!

Honestly, there are so many beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka I suggest you skip this spot all together. That being said the beach is good for snorkeling (only if you are a good swimmer and not afraid of rocks and coral). BUT, NO MATTER WHAT...More

The beach was small and honestly overrated. While the sand and the water looked nice, once you got in the water, it was all seaweed and rocks. The worst part of secret beach was when I left and was walking back to my Airbnb, a...More
