Create an itinerary including Mirissa Beach
Crystal clear waters, unblemished scenery, and a fun little night market await you at Mirissa Beach. Not too commercial or touristy, the beach offers peace and quiet as you lie down on one of the sun beds lined up along the coast. Rougher waters make for great body surfing, and the rocks harbor some marine life to observe while snorkeling. You might be surprised to hear that whales and dolphins--even giant blue whales--live in the water off this beach, so keep your eyes open. During the evening, tables with fresh produce line up along the coast, so be sure to take your pick from the delicious options available. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Mirissa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mirissa Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • One of the best beaches we have been so far in the world. Nice restaurants on the beach and do not forget to climb the parrot rock to see the panorama view of the mirissa sea.

  • Great beach for swimming. Well known for surfing. It is a very popular, clean, and serene beach. It must be there in your itinerary if you are visiting Sri Lanka.

  • Don’t have a shower to bath after bath in beach
  • Big beach with much waves and shallow water, not the best.
