Weligama or Mirissa

Which one do I stay in?? Want to get off the beaten track a little but not to the level where there are no nice restaurants (both veggies). Any suggestions would be good. Like traditional, cultural but eating in nice places and chillin in relaxed bars. Worried Mirissa maybe a little too quiet but not in to high raised hotels and tourists everywhere. Also can you hire bikes in either to go between the 2 places??

Hi there,

Beach at Mirissa is lots better. Weligama is close to river mouth and harbour with some pollution in sea and on beach. Also Weligama has less of a restaurant scene than Mirissa, whilst this is still lowkey compared to bigger siblings U'tuna and H'duwa.

Bikes for hire in Mirissa to visit Weligama, don't know about Weligama bike shops.

All the best,

Definitely Mirissa over Welligama. Hope you eat fish as veges as what you get there is great. You can always get a tuk tuk through to Welligama for a change night or day as it's only 10 minutes away.
