MIRISSA



Places to visit:


Sleepy Mirissa, 4km southeast of Weligama on the Matara road, has a headland dividing its small fishing harbour from a beautiful curve of sandy beach with calm, clear waters.

It also attracts foreigners who want to buy a piece of land and settle in the place for a variety of reasons. One is that Mirissa continues to boost its position as the largest producer of fish in Sri Lanka. Another is that the beach has rapidly become a popular surfers' sliver of paradise especially to the Japanese crowd. Perhaps the most compelling reason is that Mirissa remains untouched up to this day, maintaining a tranquil environ.

To those who fancy colorful festivities, the humble fishing hamlet of Mirissa holds a masked dance called Gam-Maduwa, a showcased of the traditional kolam masks. Natives wear masks and head to Sri Sunandarama Temple to chant sutras as a way of thanking gods for the bountiful blessings of the sea. A private collection of masks is exhibited at the remote village of Udupila which is still a part of Mirissa.
