Enjoy the best snorkeling in Polhena
POLHENA, A PLACE WHERE THE BEST SUNSETS COME TO LIFE
Polhena beach is a small sandy cove that’s sheltered by a reef offshore.
The great thing about it is that any person can easily swim through the area as the seawater is fenced with the reef and this makes the beach a natural swimming pool.
Famous amoung the travelers as a beach that gets visited by green turtles, not many of them know that this reef is also a breeding ground for many juvenile fish and critters.
In the off season, you can watch the stilt fishermen fishing in the reef and it is a very unique scene to behold.
There is a Police life-saving post next to the beach and in the evenings, street food vendors start making their mouth watering short eats, small feasts to die for!
This is why we decided to provide high quality guided tours for day snorkeling and night snorkeling for our clients. It is more fun and knowledgable with our crew!

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.
