SECRET BEACH IN MIRISSA, SRI LANKA

SECRET BEACH IN MIRISSA, SRI LANKA

SECRET BEACH MIRISSA

I have finally arrived to the very south of Sri Lanka to Weligama Bay. The last 7 days cruising down the west coast has been one heck of an adventure, from palm tree rope swings at Dalawella to surfing at Midigama Beach. These are just some of the things I have been up to and there is a lot more to come.

I have based myself in Weligama for 3 nights, staying at the Fisherman’s Bay Hotel. This hotel has its very own private beach and an incredible view of Weligama Bay. I don’t stay at hotels very often (well never actually) but I was fortunate enough to be offered a complimentary stay for a media collaboration with the company. The staff and service here is top notch and I give it my own 5 star rating. Click Here to see the latest rates.

Now where is this Secret Beach I speak of?! Well it’s a little hidden gem just around the corner from the main beach in Mirissa, which is on the south-east tip that makes up Weligama Bay.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SECRET BEACH MIRISSA

Right now you are probably thinking, ‘If it’s a secret beach, why is it on the map?’ Haha. Well my only answer to that is, I believe that at some point this was a secret spot only the locals knew about and they could only keep it a secret for so long. Of course with the new influx of tourism in Sri Lanka, spots like these become an opportunity for the locals to turn it in to an attraction and somehow try to make money from it. Furthermore, they give google a call to get their name put on the map! So I guess now you could say it’s a not-so-secret beach but it’s definitely worth a visit.

The great thing about the Secret Beach in Mirissa is that you don’t have to pay at all to visit the beach. Instead of the locals charging an entry fee there is an established beach bar and they will promptly try to sell you drinks and food. They also have snorkel sets and day beds for rent for 500 Rupees. This is their way of making a little bit of money and for you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

THE THREE BEACHES – SECRET BEACH MIRISSA

There is actually 3 beaches at this Secret Beach location.

1. Blue Lagoon

Directly in front of the bar there are hammocks and day beds overlooking a blue lagoon beach. A tidal rock pool, perfect for a lazy swim without the disturbance of crashing waves.

2. Palm Cove

Around the corner from the blue lagoon is where the jungle meets the sea and here you’ll find a picturesque cove with golden sand and coconut palms. This is the best spot to go snorkelling and exploring along the rocks.

3. Shelly Beach

This tucked away paradise is a sight for sore eyes! If you are in the blue lagoon looking out at the horizon, head to the right along the rocks and keep following it around until you come across the shelly beach. Swim in the crystal clear rock pools and get sprayed by the blow hole!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT SECRET BEACH MIRISSA

There is lots of exploring to do around the Secret Beach and it’s a great spot to get some epic photos. I have been back twice now to see what else I could find in the area.

There is an abundance of wildlife around, making themselves known, including black monkeys, squirrels, peacocks, fruit bats, birds and land monitors. Sri Lanka is also home to 5 out of 7 species of turtles in the world, so keep your eyes peeled when you’re swimming or snorkelling because chances are high that you will spot a turtle.

Weligama Bay is a very busy beach town and can get overwhelming at times, so go and discover the Secret Beach for yourself and spend half a day getting salty and listening to the birds.
