One of the main beach destinations towards the south of Sri Lanka, Mirissa boasts beautiful beaches, amazing surf waves and tons of activities. Want to know more about what to do here?
1) Secret Beach
This is a tiny secluded beach in Mirissa and is not the easiest place to get to. When you get there, however, the sight is absolutely stunning. You’ll find a small bar and a local woman who sells coconuts here. The sunset is definitely reason enough to venture on and find this place.
2) Parrot Rock
Located right on the Mirissa Beach, Parrot Rock is a small rock that you can climb up for a beautiful view of the Mirissa area. Since you have to walk through the water to get here it’s best avoided during the high tide. If you’re looking for a Sri Lanka boutique hotel, there are so many good options to choose from, such as the Lantern Boutique Hotel for example.
3) Whale watching
Whale watching is another incredibly popular thing to do when you’re in Mirissa. You’ll find many places that offer tours where they take you out into the ocean for a few hours so witness these majestic creatures. You’ll also come across dolphins and turtles.
Mirissa is very popular for its waves amongst surfers. While it can get a bit crowded, if you love the sport, you should give it a go.
