Polhena Beach

Located not far from the city centre of Matara, the Polhena Beach offers the perfect atmosphere for a beach getaway, without the crowds of tourists, making it all the more exclusive to anyone who visits the sandy stretch. The beach is primarily known to be a place of solitude and peace, so as to induce that sense of calmness in the minds of the traveller. Even the waters are relatively calmer than that experienced in Galle and Weligama, because of the corals acting as a fence of sorts. Although popular as a picnic beach, there are a few water sports that you can engage in, namely swimming and snorkeling.
