There is sandy cove and a rocky cove separated by an outcrop of rocks.

A little off the main Mirissa beach, there is a small rock with a splendid view of the area. You can walk through the salty waters to reach the rock. But be careful when you do and avoid going to the rock during high tide.
Coconut Tree Grove
The coconut palm grove is located just about 30 minutes away from the main beach. This is possibly the best place to catch a sunset. You can access the grove through one of the restaurants or simply walk through the shallows.
