Sri Lanka


Mirissa is a little bay, backed with coconut palms, that is best suited to those who are looking for a beach that’s low key and intimate. Located on the southern coast of Sri Lanka, 25 minutes from Matara, whilst there is plenty of good accommodation here, and a beautiful beach, none of the big resorts have got a foot hold yet. Mirissa is also Sri Lanka’s whale watching centre, you may even see sperm whales from the shore in the right season, and also offers a range of water sports including snorkelling and sea kayaking.

Where to stay

Mandara Resort Mirissa

Right on Marissa Beach, between red cliffs and coconut plantations, the Mandara Resort offers a tranquil place for utter relaxation. Find peace on your private balcony whilst gazing out over the sea, stay active with the gym and pool or just flop down on a beach lounger to while away the day.
