Mirissa - Holiday Tour Packages
Mirissa is a small town lying on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, specifically located in the Matara District, approximately 240 kilometers south of Colombo. It is a popular spot for its beach and nightlife, whale and dolphin watching opportunities and fishing. All these things said, it is a great destination for your next Sri Lanka vacation.
Top Places to Visit in Mirissa
While in this beautiful town, you should not miss going to its beaches, where you will find modest guesthouses and a string of simple cafes that lie along the shores. But so far, sand-encroaching constructions are stopped by the government, as what you would see at Unawatuna, though this might continue considering the growing number of visitors. You can also head to Matara and Weligama, where tourist services abound, as well as small markets.
Top Things to Do in Mirissa
For a more worthwhile experience in this beautiful town, include the following activities in your itinerary:
- Nature Safari - One popular spot to experience this activity in the island country is the Yala National Park. Basically, you will be riding a jeep while exploring all the exotic animals and plants that thrive in this place. This is best done during the morning, when there will be more wild animals out and about.
- Whale Watching - This exciting tour usually starts from the Galle Fort to the Mirissa fishing port. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful ocean, spotting various kinds of whales, dolphins, sea turtles and sharks, and then indulge yourself in a sumptuous meal.
- Root Spa - At a secret spot away at the end of the jungle lane in this town, specifically at the eastern part of the beach, you will find a family-run Ayurvedic center that offers a root spa service to help relieve tension from your activities in your trip.
- Deep-Sea Fishing - This activity will allow you to have a first-hand experience of fishing in the deep sea. Usually, this will take you about 4 hours, where you will be able to fish a sail fish, black or blue marlin, a wahoo and other big fish species found in the waters surrounding the town.
Top Attractions and Landmarks in Mirissa
Among the many attractions in Mirissa, here are those that you should not miss on your holiday:
- The Port of Galle - This fort is one of the most beautiful old Portuguese and Dutch ports in South East Asia. Basically, this includes a port town with a thriving neighborhood within the fort walls. Once inside, you can stroll along the small streets and then grab something to munch on or drink, while looking over the ocean.
- Mirissa Beach - This beach is known for having a relaxed and picturesque atmosphere, secluded laying about 5 kilometers from Weilgama. Like other beaches on the southern coast of the country, the Mirissa Beach is good for surfing, body boarding and other water activities.
