Crystal clear waters, unblemished scenery, and a fun little night market await you at Mirissa Beach. Not too commercial or touristy, the beach offers peace and quiet as you lie down on one of the sun beds lined up along the coast. Rougher waters make for great body surfing, and the rocks harbor some marine life to observe while snorkeling. You might be surprised to hear that whales and dolphins--even giant blue whales--live in the water off this beach, so keep your eyes open. During the evening, tables with fresh produce line up along the coast, so be sure to take your pick from the delicious options available. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Mirissa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mirissa Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Mirissa Beach Reviews
Awesome beach with pretty decent waves, few good bars and restaurants, great place to go for a morning run as well as just chill or go surfing, it rained only once during my week-long stay in October. more »
Pěkná písčitá pláž s pozvolným vstupem do vody. Pro větší vlny není příliš vhodná pro malé děti, ale zase je příznivá pro surfaře. Čistá voda a příjemný písek láká k aktivnímu odpočinku. Není zde ale ... more »Nice sandy beach with gradual entrance into the water. For larger waves is not very suitable for small children, but again it is favorable for surfers. Clean water and pleasant sand attract active relaxation. But there is not much opportunity to hide in the shade, more palm trees are more near the surrounding beaches. There are several restaurants along the beach where prices and meals are at a decent level.
One of the most popular & most crowded beach. People who love beach parties & seafood this is the right place for you.
The best beach... visit coconut tree hill for a 360 view
