Mirissa Beach

Crescent-shaped Mirissa Beach on the south coast is one of the country’s best places to admire a Sri Lankan sunrise or sunset – stay put on the beach all day and you could tick off both. This small, sandy beach is around 150 kilometres south of Colombo; expect to share it with monkeys, striped squirrels, wild peacocks and other wildlife.
