Parrot Rock is an iconic destination on the Mirissa coastline. Visit the rock early morning to catch beautiful views and to enjoy some peace and tranquility.
How to get there
Parrot Rock is close to most of the hotels in Mirissa. It is situated at the Eastern point of the main beach. You can get there through any of the accessing points to the beach.
There are also other attractive spots like Coconut Tree Hill that you can visit on the way. The most famous and iconic attraction Gall Fort is also just a few kilometers away!
What time to go
It is generally best to visit Parrot Rock in the morning since there will be fewer people. This way you will have the rock all to yourself to enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding ocean. If you’d rather spend your morning being cozy at Sri Sharavi Beach Villas & Spa, you can visit the rock close to sunset.
What do you need
The climb to parrot rock is quite short. So you won’t need too many things. Just a water bottle, sunglasses, and sunscreen should do. If you are interested in taking pictures of the surrounding, also take a camera and a waterproof bag with you. This is because you sometimes need to walk through the water when the tide is high to get to the rock.
