Polhena Beach is one of the safest beaches in Sri Lanka with waist-high water and coral reefs. Swimming here is like swimming in a swimming pool but with an extraordinary aquatic life such a numerous giant green turtles, and fish which makes one’s dive even more memorable.
The beach is well maintained, and the white sand and the clear blue water make a perfect holiday spot. The water is shallow for a long stretch as the waves break far out, so it is ideal for non-swimmers as well. This beach is a local hangout spot, small and perfect for a traveller who wants to see the local life. There are bathing and changing spots where one can put on beachwear. There are also some shops on the beach where one can buy pretty seashells and grab a bite in one of the restaurants nearby.
