Mirissa is one of the most popular beach towns on Sri Lanka’s south coast, not least because it boasts one of the most beautiful bays in the island. During the season between December – April is the best time to visit, when the waters are calmer and safe to swim in, and the café-bars and restaurants which line the beach are in full swing. Zephyr Restaurant and Bar is always a popular choice, serving up delicious freshly-caught seafood and a wide range of inventive cocktails.
Mirissa Bay is renowned for its water-sports, including snorkelling and sailing. During the season, Mirissa is also a great surfing spot and attracts visitors from across the globe. Go out to sea in search of whales and dolphins: Blue Whales, Sperm Whales and Spinner Dolphins are all common sights during December – April. If you are seeking some romance, why not take a private sundown cruise? You can even stay overnight on Sail Lanka’s catamaran ‘Jade 52’: let the surrounding bobbing waves lull you to sleep before spending the next day paddle-boarding and snorkelling at nearby Weligama.
