Secret Beach Mirissa is a quiet little cove enclosed by many palm trees and large boulders. As the name suggests, this beach is more hidden and secretive so you won’t find large crowds of people. It’s the perfect beach to spend an afternoon relaxing at the beach front bar and watching the sunset.
Where to stay in Mirissa
There are a variety of places to stay within Mirissa, as well as a range of different accommodation types. We found that the best area to stay is right near Mirissa Beach. Here you’ll find the most food and shop options. We stayed at Little Pink House which is a short walk from the beach in a quiet local street. We definitely recommend staying here as it’s like having your own home. You’ll find a little pink house on a small block of land with its own garden, kitchen and bedroom. Every morning the lovely owner also comes by and makes a delicious breakfast! You definitely won’t want to leave here. Paradise Beach Club is also a popular luxury option right on the beach with nice rooms and it’s own pool.

How to get to secret beach Mirissa
There are a few different ways you can access Secret Beach Mirissa. You can walk, drive yourself on your moped or take a tuk tuk. We decided to walk which took us roughly 20 minutes from our accommodation which wasn’t far from Mirissa beach. Walk along Harbour Road until you see signs pointing you in the direction of Secret Beach. You’ll know you’re going the right way if the hills start to get very steep. Once you’re at the very top, you can walk through the bush and along a pathway that leads you right to the beach. If you’re driving you’ll have to stay on the concrete road so you can park.
What to expect
Secret Beach Mirissa is a super cool place to hang out during the day away from the crowds. We visited later in the afternoon around sunset and found a few tables out on the sand where you could order drinks and watch the sunset. We found the beers to be slightly expensive so instead we just sat along the sand. Secret Beach is a gorgeous little beach although it’s not the best for swimming. The water is quite shallow and there are lots of sharp rocks and sea urchins close to the shore. It’s still a great place to have some peace and quiet among the palm trees. If you visit during the day, the water will be bright blue and the sand will appear incredibly bright and white.
