The Galle Road snakes along the coastline southward, gently kissing the discreet yet cozy, reef-guarded bay of Mirissa,
Until recently, Mirissa was the South coast”s fiercely guarded secret escape. Accommodation was sparse, which meant reviews were few and far between, and the lack of commercial properties meant travel agents had no visibility into the area. Amongst the many things to do in Mirissa, the surrounding itself has the perfect balance of that sleepy, “holiday” feel where you can spend your days lounging in a hammock, sipping coconut water.
Weligama (direct translation means “Sandy Village”) has equal, yet contrasting appeal. When driving into Weligama, a stunning canvas painted with a vista of colourful fishing boats bobbing gently on turquoise water, with the backdrop of Taprobane Island, and the cliffs beyond suddenly smacks you in the face, to make sure you”re wide awake to “wow” at a truly idyllic stretch of beach. Weligama has gained popularity as a perfect surfing spot for beginners.
