Highlights of Sri Lanka

Mirissa

Scroll

Situated on the wide Weligama Bay on the south coast east of Galle, the village of Mirissa is itself not very remarkable, but it’s from there that early morning boat trips are taken out to sea to spot the largest creature ever to have lived on Earth – the blue whale. From November to April, these wondrous cetaceans can be reliably observed offshore, along with various species of dolphins and seabirds. This activity combines very well with an itinerary including Galle, Bundala and Yala.
