Mirissa - A Pleasing Southern Seaside Town
A lively, yet low-key town, Mirissa offers a satisfying seaside stay. Here you may stroll some of the nicest stretches of beaches on the southern coast. There are many activities to keep you busy when you’re not relaxing on the beach. Take a surf lesson or let the waves toss you around on a body board. Spend the day out on a boat looking for blue and sperm whales. If you still have energy at the end of the day, join up with some of the young, independent travelers that gather for spontaneous night parties on the beach.
