Top reasons to visit Mirissa – A magical beach destination

Hopping between the beaches of Sri Lanka is one of the best things to do on this island destination, and when you do Mirissa is one coastal city you come across on the southern coast. You can never get bored with this city because there are many interesting things about it and here are some of them.


The beach

One thing that you'll surely adore about the Mirissa beach is its beauty and the cleanliness. Tourists do come and spend their time here, but it's never overcrowded. There is another popular beach named the 'Secret Beach' very close to the main one, but accessibility to it remains a problem. So, those who are not ready for a short walk to find the Secret beach can be here on the Mirissa beach and relax and have fun with the sand and the wind.


Great accommodation options

In Mirissa, you do find a lot of accommodation options, and they are equally great. The tourism aspect of this beach destination has improved extensively, and as a result of this, many hotels in Mirissa, Sri Lanka were established with world-class hospitality services. Hotels the likes of Sri Sharavi Beach Villas & Spa in Mirissa do provide unbelievable holiday options for their guests such as complimentary yoga lessons and cycling sessions, and guests (especially the tourists) love these specialties a lot!


Availability of several water sports facilities

Mirissa is indeed a paradise for those who love water adventures. If you are someone who loves surfing, go there and practice catching the Mirissa waves like a pro, and you have everything that you may need there (including the instructors and surfboards). These waves are ideal even for the beginners, so surfing with confidence is easy here in Mirissa. Snorkelling is another water adventure that you can try here, and again, if you do not have the equipment with you (and if they are not provided by your resort too), you may get them from a place where they rent them out.


Whale watching

How about seeing some blue whales when you are in Mirissa? All you have to do is say yes for a whale-watching cruise and enjoy your moments. Travel to Mirissa from October to May for an amazing whale watching experience, and even if you don't spot them during the journey that you do, most of the cruise agents are kind enough to grant you another day for free. You may also spot some dolphins on the same tour, and wave at them as if they were some known friends to you from long before.


Nearby attractions

If you get lucky enough to hire a scooter to travel here and there, just do not forget to visit the neighbouring coastal cities too. Located very close to Mirissa is Weligama, and it's also a paradise for surfers and those who love to relax by the beach. If you are with your family, do not forget to head to the Dalawella beach as well to enjoy a sunset.
