Lovely little beach for swimming, snorkeling and swiming with turtles. Turns into a party beach at night with streetfood, music and dancing.
Watch the local fisherman on stilts and go snorkelling for a chance to see the turtles.

“The seas around Sri Lanka offer the chance to see Blue Whales in concentrations not seen elsewhere in the world. Blue Whales do not move in groups like Sperm Whales for example. However, off the south coast they gather for feeding, with mothers often seen with calves. On our trips recently we had at least six, possibly ten individuals, within a quadrat of half a kilometer square. A concentration of blue whales of this nature is something which whale watchers can only dream about. We can arrange a professionally designed Whale watching tour or can also offer Whale watching extensions to your general naturalist holiday inSri Lanka. We also work closely with Dr.Charles Anderson, a professional marine biologist who runs a Whale and Dolphin watching company in Maldives. He has been living in the Maldives from 1983, and has a wealth of experience on marine life. Dr. Charles also offers and leads Whale watching tours in Sri Lanka.”
“A 15-minute from Mirissa Beach is a small coconut farm on a hilltop. The view or sunset view from here is simply amazing. It’s quite easy to get here since the place is on Google Maps. You can access it via one of the restaurants nearby or by a small walk through the water. Be careful with the coconuts, we can tell from our own experience that coconuts will fall from trees.”

“Ssst, this one is secret. A tiny secluded beach and not the easiest place to reach. That’s why Secret Beach is so beautiful. There are one small bar and a local woman selling coconuts. Enjoy an incredible sunset from Secret Beach. Search on Google Maps for Secret Beach bar and ask a tuk-tuk driver to take you there. You will need to walk about 10 minutes down the road since this is too steep for the tuk-tuks.”
“10 minutes Tuk-Tuk from Salt House there is one of the most amazing Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka. It is 160ft high, the largest statue in all of Sri Lanka. Ask Sagara and he will help you organise!”
