What I did
the world. It is situated between two major cities in the down south of
Sri Lanka. Between Galle and Mathara you will see a crescent shaped
beach with Clear water, fine sand and no high sea wave. When you are in
Mirissa beach The Indian Ocean is the only thing between you and the
next large land mass, the continent of Antarctica or Africa.
is well known for water sports like swimming, surfing and many more as
there is no dangerous shelving there. The shallow water make you feel to
walk far from the beach. But I am not recommending anyone to go far in
the sea as there is so many sand to rest and walk.
To get this place
from the airport you can hire a taxi or use public transport. If you
hire a taxi it will cost you around LKR 10000 to 15000. By public
transport it is LKR (I recommend to use only Intercity buses) 400.00.
When you use public transport you have to get one bus from airport to
Colombo and then to Mathara. Ask conductor to drop you by the Mirissa
There are so many semi luxury hotels and guest houses in the
area. You can find cheaper places to stay in outside of the beach on the
other side of the road inside to the country than on the beach. But it
is no wonder to stay outside the beach. In November to February the very
busy season start on the Mirissa beach so it is always best to make a
reservation well ahead of time and then re-confirm especially during
Mirissa has its own fishing harbour and every day boats
come back from the ocean and there are lot of sea foods available in the
restaurants. So having dish full seafood with a cool bear is great in
the beachside restaurant facing to the breeze of the ocean even in the
moon light in dine.
Mirissa is the best place to start your whale
and dolphin watching tour in Sri Lanka. But only there are few companies
offering tickets to this trip in Mirissa.
So in fact Mirissa is a
great place to enjoy your Sri Lanka tour and next time when you plan
your trip include Mirissa to relax a while on a beautiful beach in Sri
