6. Turtle Lagoon (350m)
Mihiripenna Beach, neighbouring Dalawella, is a protected lagoon covered by coral reef. It’s swimmable almost all year round, and is home to many turtles. As some of these species are endagngered, and our friendly fellows are protected species, it’s illegal to touch these magic animals. Please keep your distance!
