Take a trip to the seaside town of Mirissa, between November and April you’ll be in one of the best places on the planet for whale watching. These mighty marine giants are drawn to the sea trench just off the coast to feed, making your chances of spotting them particularly high. In your free time, you can walk along the soft sands of Mirissa’s crescent bay, crack open a coconut and let your worries drift away.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival in Mirissa

As you approach the small town of Mirissa you’ll pass coconut palms, ocean views and fishermen on stilts. Soon enough you’ll arrive at your accommodation; we’ve found a cosy guesthouse tucked away down a quiet side street, just a 5min walk from the beach. Once you’ve freshened up you can take a walk along Mirissa’s crowning glory. Although the sea can be rocky at times, on calm days it’s a stunner.

Arrival in Mirissa

Half Day Whale Watching

Early this morning, you’ll be collected from your hotel and taken to Mirissa port where you’ll embark on a half-day whale watching trip with a small group of other international travellers. You’ll have a good chance of spotting whales from the ship, or maybe even dolphins; they like to frolic in the ships swell. Once you’re back on dry land you’ll be dropped off back at your cosy B&B.

Half Day Whale Watching

Departure from Mirissa

Today it’s time to move on. After a hearty breakfast you’ll pack up your things and get ready to journey onwards to your next destination. If you’ve got a little time to spare you could have one last stroll along the beach, a final swing in a hammock or a concluding sip of a tropical fruit shake at a beach front café.

“There’s nowhere like Sri Lanka. Having travelled all over the country, it wasn’t long before I fell completely in love with its beaches, tea hills, wild rainforest and national parks. Oh, and did I mention the spicy curries? They knocked my socks off!”
