Madu from Amarasinghe's guesthouse offers Sri Lankan cookery courses twice daily. They last for about 2 hours and you can eat the food afterwards. When we were there, we were 7 people in one class; the sheltered outdoor kitchen offers enough space. The day before when we were there to register for the class, the ongoing class had only 4 students,...more
All along the southern coast of Sri Lanka you can spot wooden 'stilts' sticking up from the water. These wooden stilts are what local fishermen have traditionally used as fishing posts from which they catch their daily quota of fish. While the tradition is slowly dying out it is still posiible to see men fishing in this way particularly around...more
The sunsets at Mirissa are special and there are many places to enjoy the sunset while sipping a beer or cocktail. The bar shacks at the eastern end are the best places to enjoy the view or better yet make the short walk/paddle out to the offshore island for spectacular views of the sun slipping away behind the peninsula to the west.more
While locations further west along the southern coast have gained more of a following among the surfing fraternity, Mirissa has recently started attracting a fair number of surfers thanks to its right break at the western end of the beach. Some bars and guesthouses rent boards and snorkelling equipment especially the ones located at the western end...more
At the eastern end of Mirissa Beach is a small island which has just about been cut off from the mainland. You can easily wade out to the island from the beach, athough people with young children should take care as currents do swell up through the narrow channel between the island and the beach. The island itself is a prime position for a picninc...more

Besides the paradise beach club,they have a relative good service for mirissa , and they have enough light that you can see the food
In the most restaurant in mirissa they work veru slow and normally you have to wait avbout one hour for the food.
the restaurants in the beach are simple huts,and the tables are on the sand ,at night there is little light and therefore sometimes you hardely see the food in the dish
Favorite Dish: grilled fish
+When we visited Mirissa, the locals were just starting to set up for the high season and so there wasn't a huge amount happening at night in Mirissa. We weren't particularly looking for mad nightlife anyway so it suited us fine. There was a selection a beach bars and shacks serving food and drink but after midnight there wasn't much happening and the bars were quiet. Even in the high season Mirissa doesn't have to nightlife of other southern beaches but that isn't what this place is about anyway so if you want crazy nightlife I wouldn't pick Mirissa in the forst place. However, if you want a quiet and relaxing place to sample some seafood and sip a few beers while while chatting and listening to the laping waves then Mirissa is perfect :)
While we had our own transport while in Sri Lanka which us great flexibility to explore the region Mirissa is still easy to get to by public transport. While the train line does relatively close to Mirissa on the way to Matara, the station is inconveniently located and badly served by three wheelers so you are better off getting the bus which will...more
A more fan and easier way to tour around the south coast from place to place are tuk-tuks. These are motor tricycles. You can hire one for the day and you can tour and make as much stops as you want en route. But first negotiate the price. Keep in mind that the roads in Sri Lanka are not wide and specially in the coastal part there is heavy...more
The beautiful waters of Mirissa Beach may look as inviting as a warm bath but the turquoise water hide dangerous rip tides and string currents. You won’t have been in the water long before you feel the strong tug of the water as your feet try to dig into the soft sand beneath your feet. You definitely don’t want to underestimate the powerful currents in this bay and you are strongly advised to stay close to the shore. During our time at Mirissa we saw more than one person get into trouble and at one point we had to rush to the help of a young girl who got into difficulty when body boarding. If you are not a confident swimmer, stick to paddling or shallow swimming while at Mirissa.
More a barn than a farm, the snake farm is located about 7 km out of Mirissa. The owner -who acts also as a an ayuverdic practitioner- we’ll name you the snakes, will irritate the cobras so you can have a nice picture of it (you have to pay for every picture you take) and when you finish with the snakes he will present you oils and potions that he makes himself and –of course- you can buy. The good think is that he is not very pushing (if you want to buy remember that, once again, bargaining is the key word).… To visit the snake farm you have to hire a three-wheeler in Mirissa.
