Travel Tips for visiting Mirissa

East of Weligama Bay, about 150 kilometres south of Colombo, the small fishing village of Mirissa is home to some of the country's wildest and most beautiful beaches. There is nothing to disturb the peace and quiet of the travellers except the thundering of the Indian Ocean. Surfers have of course moved in to enjoy the waves but that's it. There are few buildings on the shore. Only coconut trees, fine sand and a lot of sun. The icing on the cake: the centre of Mirissa beach is relatively sheltered from the sea currents. Perfect for safe family swims. With such clear and inviting waters, you'll probably want to check out the aquatic life during your stay in Sri Lanka. Grab your mask and snorkel, and the exotic colourful fish, giant sea urchins and corals are waiting for you. Try to spot the amazing Boxfish, a yellow tropical fish shaped like a... cube! If you prefer to stay out in the open and are on site between November and May, take a small boat out to see the blue whales - the largest of the species - cruising offshore. If you're lucky, you may also see humpback and sperm whales. Sri Lanka is renowned for being one of the best whale watching spots in the world.
