Mirissa is the largest fishing port situated on South coast and is a famous stop over for travelers visiting Sri Lanka. It is a small beautiful village with two surfing points for advance surfers and intermediate surfers.
The golden sandy beaches secluded from all the hustle and bustle of the city and the town is largely untouched by the modern concrete structures, creating a peaceful perfect tropical heaven.
Best time to visit Mirissa is between December and March, which is generally the driest months of the year, however the Sri Lankan weather can be highly unpredictable due to having two different monsoon seasons.
