Experiences in Mirissa

Back Back

A lively south coast town with a beautiful bay

Welcome to Mirissa, a picturesque bay on Sri Lanka’s south coast which attracts everyone from backpackers in search of lively beach bars and exhilarating water-sports to families seeking an exciting beach holiday or couples looking for a relaxing escape on the island’s spectacular southern coastline. This charismatic and invigorating town has become one of the most popular Sri Lanka holiday destinations due to its stunning main bay, wide variety of water-sports on offer and the lively beachfront. Try snorkelling, surfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing and sea kayaking.

Mirissa is also one of the best places for whale and dolphin watching in Sri Lanka (if you go during the season between December and March when the whales are migrating close to the island’s shores) – go out to sea on a private catamaran, accompanied by a marine biologist, and watch spinner dolphins spiralling through the air beside your boat as you seek out signs of whales, including the majestic blue whale.

 If you are interested in more tranquil experiences, spend some time at Zephyr Restaurant and Bar enjoying a cocktail or two and some delicious seafood dishes, or laze about in hammocks underneath the shade of one of the trees which fringe the bay. You can also be truly indulgent and take in one of the spectacular sunsets during a sundown cruise on a luxury yatch.
