Mirissa to airport, via Negombo or direct?

Thinking of ending our holiday with a 4 night stay in Mirissa, then travelling by train to Negombo for 1 night before airport departure at 17.25. Is the train to Colombo from the south coast a very scenic journey, worth doing for the experience itself? Otherwise, maybe we would stay an extra night in Mirissa (or an extra night somewhere else) and travel by car on our departure day, without visiting Colombo or Negombo. I would appreciate your views on these alternatives. Thank you

I personally would spent the last night in Negombo. I like the train Journey from Galle to Colombo it is scenic and a good experience. I would get the train from Matara as trains only stop at Mirissa twice a day, check train times at, www.gic.gov.lk/gic/index.php…

1 tip. when you get on at Matara/Mirissa Sit on the inland side as this will put you on the beachside after departing from Galle.
