Mirissa is famous for whale watching so book yourself a tour that starts at 7 am and head to the ocean to catch a glimpse of these gentle giants of the ocean. We were lucky enough to spot blue whales, dolphins, and plenty of flying fish.

About Mirissa

Our last destination before we head to Galle, is Mirissa – the crescent-shaped beach. It's packed with small guesthouses and tiny lounges and bars, that are devoid of any frills whatsoever.Top experiences: Take a ceremonial dip into the Mirissa beach; capture the silhouettes of the stilt fishermen upon sunset; if you're observant, you might spot pods of playful dolphins and a bevy of green turtles lounging around the beach; don't forget to get yourself a glass of thambili – a sweet, refreshing coconut drink.Distance: 80 kilometresWhere to stay: Mandara ResortFor more options, check here.
