The south of Sri Lanka beyond Dondra is considered one of the best locations in the world for spotting Blue Whales, Sperm Whales and Spinner Dolphins. Whale watching excursions are organised by Mirissa Water Sports during the season from December to April when the seas are calm.

The historic city of Galle is 25 minutes away from Mirissa. A visit to Galle’s 17th century Dutch Fort, a UNESCO-protected World Heritage site and a melting pot of cultural influences is recommended. Several hours can be spent wandering along the narrow streets, well preserved ramparts and the lighthouse. The thick, high ramparts that protect and distinguish the Fort are today used for romantic evening strolls.
