Mirissa Beach – For a Whale of a Time!
Mirissa neighbours the Weligama Bay and is part of the idyllic stretch. Located there is Surf Beach, home to surfing schools operating on the beach, it’s a breeze to rent a board around this area, while for a minimum fee, expert local instructors will teach you the basics of surfing in next to no time. Mirissa is also famous for whale watching.
The Beach is absolutely breathtaking, boasting crystal clear waters and shady coconut palms. At Mirissa you are treated to mellow reef breaks, peeling back slowly the breaks glide lazily over deep water to end at the reef – a great practise point. October to April is high season folks and it’s hot there, you know what to pack!
