Despite the attractions it showcases, Mirissa in itself is a sight to behold. Rolling sandy beaches, coconut groves, the scenic view of the mighty Indian Ocean, all set the stage for what can only be deemed a perfect beach holiday destination in par with the best in the world.
Come inland, and you will be greeted by miles of beautifully cultivated paddy fields.
The beach is dotted with many restaurants and bars serving fresh seafood, western dishes, cocktails, beer and juices.
Mirissa also offers opportunity to do some sightseeing in neighboring towns. Check out the historic Dutch Fort at Galle or stilt fishermen in Ahangama. Alternatively, you can go surfing in Mirissa and Weligama, which is just minutes away. As it’s also one of the top destinations for whale watching in Asia (something you shouldn’t miss in your tour to Mirissa)
