We are traveling to Sri Lanka with our 2 year old daughter at the end of Feb for just over 2 weeks. We have booked a simple beach Cabana in Mirissa for most of our stay but want advice on a place to stay in between Colombo and Mirissa on the way in and out of Sri Lanka. Some thing no more then 1.5 hours to Colombo airport is ideal.
We would like a peaceful beach, with safe water and local village life during our stay. Is Mirissa the best option for this kind of holiday?
