  • We took the advice of a previous reviewer and went on the Catamaran Water Sprite II. It was well worth the extra cost as it is a beautiful craft. It will take 25, but was very comfortable with only 6 ...  more »
  • Actually, we had booked a tour on a catamaran, but at midnight, the organizers wrote us a text message, that there were too few bookings for and doesn't start so the catamaran. Of course, we read this SMS in the morning and we were very disappointed. Anyway, were we on the way to the meeting place and negotiated with him a tour on a trimaran. A TukTuk brought us free of charge to the port, and there we got some dirty old life jackets. The tour itself was nice, we saw whales and dolphins and one was supplied with some food and beverages. After about 4h tour's went back to the port, where we were unfortunately not our TukTuk driver and we had to only care that someone brings us, although that is promised to us prior to the start.

Where to stay in Mirissa

It comes as no surprise that most visitors to Mirissa want to be as close to the beach as possible, and the accommodations in the town cater to this desire. Beachside guesthouses and inns, usually rather modest in size, sit by the sandy stretch and on the roads that lead away from it. The main thoroughfare, Matara Road, features a number of accommodations as it works its way inland to the west, and when it becomes a coastal road to the east of the main town. Some hostels have opened in recent years, providing dormitory-style lodging for particularly budget-conscious travelers.
