Polhena reef was heavily damaged by the 2004 Tsunami and more than 90% of it’s coral cover is gone by today. However, Polhena Diving Center and few organizations started a joint project to create an artificial reef to conserve this beautiful ecosystem.
Snorkeling in Polhena is famous among the travelers for its resident Green Turtles. There are more than 5 fully grown green turtles who call the reef as their home and really friendly towards swimmers. We even have a photo identification system for them too!
Despite having a spearhead formation towards the ocean, The reef blocks all the heavy waves around the reef, results in a 3 to 8 feet deep, 300 meter long natural pool where you can swim peacefully.
