Arugam bay to Mirissa

Can some one advise me the travelling time from Arugam Bay to Mirissa.? Can you drive along the coastal road or do you have to head inland. Thanks

You cannot go down the coast. You have to go west to Buttala, then south to Tissa which takes 3 - 3 1/2 hours. From Tissa it is about the same time to Mirissa. I did that trip in reverse a couple of weeks ago but broke the trip up by staying at Tissa, doing Yala early morning then heading to Arugam.

Good luck,

Mark

Thanks. I am starting to realise how slow travel is in Sri Lanka and that in the time frame we can not see everything we want :-( . It has given me some ideas to start finalising a travel plan.

It is very slow..probably 30 - 40 Km's per hour in residential areas and 60-70 Km's on a rural area with a good road.
