Wonderful for youthful backpackers and beachy cocktail sippers, Mirissa is a favorited little ocean town on the South Coast in Sri Lanka. The beach in Mirissa is wonderful and so are the many restaurants and bars next to it. The high season lays around Christmas time. Have a tasty bbq fish on the beach and go on a whale-watching trip. Mirissa has a relaxed atmosphere that sweeps in the streets, wonderful to make you stay for a few days.
