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.
