high wave, not good for swiming but for surfing. also more for tourists, not for local people. there are other beaches better than here, like Unawatuna.

I spent two days at Mirissa Beach and it is a magnificent beach. Highly entertaining if you like big waves, garb a board and surf all day. On the left of the beach is a lovely lookout rock which allows you to view several bays at once and the surrounding jungle. Just a great place. The beach restaurants are also fairly decent and a great place to relax and enjoy a good curry and a few Lions. Highly recommend a visit.

I know this beach since more than 10 years and unfortunately it has become more and more a Party beach with Party Music, which can be heard along the whole beach as well as to some of the hotels and guesthouses on the Inland side throughout sometimes the whole night. The people who run many of these places are mostly uneducated and have arrogant and harassing business practices while the ones who do a god job are in the minority. Fortunately on the inland side there ares still many friendly restaurants and guesthouses. The enchanting dreamlike beach with palmtrees all along is only nice for your eyes but not any more for your ears. It would help the place if more of educated business people with a borader view would start.
