Coconut Tree Hill Mirissa is a unique cliff located at the end of a beach which is covered in palm trees. Tourists flock to this spot to take photos with all the beautiful tall palms that overlook the ocean. If you’re staying in Mirissa, be sure not to miss this beautiful spot.

How to get to Coconut Tree Hill Mirissa 

Coconut Tree Hill is a short walk from Mirissa Beach. We found it quicker to walk along the beach instead of walking along the road. Walking along the beach should take you roughly 10-15 minutes. Once on Mirissa Beach, head left and keep walking until you reach the palm trees. You can’t miss it! You could also take a tuk tuk if you don’t feel like walking, although it’s not far at all.

What to expect

Coconut Tree Hill Mirissa has become a popular photo spot due to Instagram. The insane amount of palm trees that appear on the edge of this cliff are amazing to admire. The cliff also overlooks the ocean so you have the perfect backdrop. We’ve never seen so many palm trees in such a small area.

If you plan on getting some nice shots with no one in them, it’s best to go early. Since this spot is so close to the main beach, it can get quite busy. We visited at around 10am and there were already quite a few people. As we left, a few more large groups started to turn up. If you feel like getting away from the crowds, you can explore more around the cliff and find yourself a quiet spot to relax by the sea.

Coconut Tree Hill Mirissa is definitely a spot you can’t miss while you’re staying in this beautiful town. Don’t forget to also check out Parrot Rock which is only a short walk away.
