The fishing town of Mirissa has developed into a notable tourist destination. Once known for its hauls of tuna, snapper, and butterfish, Mirissa's reputation today rests mainly on the scenic quality of its sandy coastline and its wealth of whale-watching spots. A set of squat buildings sit by the sand, including guesthouses, cafes, bars, and seafood restaurants, but Mirissa tourism does not yet feature the same number of large resorts and high-rise hotels found in other beach towns. Overall, Mirissa's limited development adds to its relaxing, paradisal atmosphere. Mirissa is in Southern Province. Plan the details of your Mirissa holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Sri Lanka itinerary planner.
