The beach itself is lovely, however there are many rocks under the water and the waves are very dumpy with a strong undertow.

As most of the beaches around Tangalle, its an amazing stretch of Sand, but not suitable for swimming. For swimming try 'Silent Beach' west of town.

For a distance the coconut beach looks great - its only as you cone close that you realise its got quite a big swell and the water isnt that clear. I wouldnt swim there again.

Beautiful place, very nice! Multi-colored sand, warm ocean, though the waves were very strong. And here it is very lonely! Many housing on the coast, is where to eat.
