Mirissa, a picture-perfect bay beach in the Southern coastal belt of Sri Lanka is located 146km south of Colombo. A couple of kilometers beyond the lovely beach of Weligama, almost hidden from the dense groves of coconut palm trees that fringe the bay lies the loveliest beach Mirissa. It’s the beach to swim, snorkel, sport fishing, sea kayaking, cruises around the bay and other water sports.
Mirissa affords the opportunity to view one of the most exciting marine life attractions of beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka: blue whales. During the period of December to April within a 6 hour boat ride, blue whales could be sighted a few kilometers into the seas at Mirissa.
