    Each evening at sunset Mother nature offers you something different, one night the sunset could be fiery red and then the next it can the most beautiful pastel pink.


    Many people grab a cool beer, bring restaurant chairs out onto the sand and sit and watch in awe at the array of colours as the sun sets behind the coconut trees on the hill.

    About 95% of the beach is sandy and rock free. The rocky bits are at both ends so if its snorkeling or surfing that you like then head there.


    The area around Parrot Rock on your left side is particularally popular with snorkellers while the right side of Mirissa Beach is rapidly becoming a popular surfing hot spot.


    All the Guest Houses in Mirissa are set back from the actual beach giving you the impression that you are on a deserted palm fringed island. Every now and again the silence is broken by the sound of a coconut falling on the sand or a chilled beer being opened by someone further up the beach.
