The bay is protected by natural coral reef which makes it excellent for snorkelling, diving and sailing. Many surfers come to the bay as there are some exciting surfing spots in this area. Most recently kite surfers have also discovered Weligama.In the middle of the bay you can see Tabrobane Island with the surprising house on the top of the tiny rocky island.

Unlike Tangalle and the beaches further along the coast, the shoreline of Mirissa beach gracefully slides into the ocean and there is no dangerous shelving making it a great place to bring kids and to leave them alone without too much worry. You can walk out into the water for about 20 meters before the water becomes waist deep. Beaches further up the coast have sharp drops and hidden shelving in the sands.


The Mirissa Fisheries Harbour was established in the year 1966 in a land area of 2.44 hectares and the harbor basin covers 7 hectares. It has a Quay wall of 458 meters and a main breakwater and a sub breakwater. It is very popular activity to visit the harbor.

SEE THE STILL FISHERMEN IN ACTION – along the coastal area of the hotel

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 Weligama and Ahangama but there are a few places along the Mirissa shoreline which have these fishing stilts sticking out of the water close to shore.

Once inside you can walk around the old fort and get lost amongst all the small streets. Grab something to eat or quench your thirst with a orange coloured King Coconut and sit on the old walls and look out over the ocean.
