My partner and I headed down here after comparing the surf report with the east side of Sri Lanka at the time. We were looking for a few relaxing days and a few waves. We found out on arrival that the surf report was pretty heavily overstated and had to make do with onshore slop when we paddled out.
Despite the poor surf conditions, the backdrop was amazing. At one end of the bay a black rocky point covered with coconut trees offered some protection from the westerly July winds. A lagoon is formed where a reef ledge shelters a section of water from the incoming waves, making it a nice place to take a swim. The rest of the long, clean sandy bay is lined with shacked restaurants that back onto accommodation options. There isn't much variety between the menus of these places and as with most countries, they do there own food the best. Enjoy a curry...
Sea Breeze Lodge itself is literally across the road from the beach. This provides respite from the crowds of people that walk in and out of the beach-side hotels all day.The room we stayed in was comfortable. No AC but the fan was more than enough during the day and night. A mosquito net gave us respite from Sri Lanka's monster sized mozzies.
The food at the lodge was delicious and we ate there most nights we were in Mirissa. Again the Sri Lankan meals were the best, including the breakfasts. Try the fruit salad and ice-cream!
The service had a maternal warmth to it and while the English spoken was very limited (and so was our Singhalese) we almost always managed to communicate what we needed to.
