From Midigama we took a bus for 25 rupees each to Mirissa, it only took about 20 minutes and had the best ceiling ever! The buses leave really regularly from the main road.20160330_103756Once we arrived in Mirissa we found an amazing room at Eco Square Lodge.  This was a newly built guesthouse and was a lovely cool room with exposed brickwork and a polished concrete bathroom with a rainshower.  The hotel had good WiFi.  It also offers a range of very cheap and more expensive rooms.IMGP1284

IMGP1285Whilst in Mirissa it is definitely worth visiting the Dewani Roti Shop.  This is run by a local couple who have built up their business.  We visited for lunch and it was very quiet with quick service. We enjoyed a watermelon fruit juice (170 rupees), a chococookies milkshake (220 rupees), an egg, cheese and vegetable roti which came with dhal (220 rupees) and then we decided to treat ourselves with a sweet roti each, one pineapple (170 rupees) and one chocolate, banana and pineapple (250 rupees), you can even add vanilla ice-cream for 60 rupees.20160330_122923

20160330_130858We really liked Mirissa, a traditional fishing village, although you can see the expansion happening rapidly.  Along the beach there is a small island where you can climb the hill to have wonderful views across the beach. IMGP1290

IMGP1292On the beautiful beachfront there are lots of cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a drink with a lovely view. We had a yummy King Coconut to drink at the World Cafe.20160330_143112Stu spotted some surfers at Mirissa so decided to join them! He surfed the Eastern side of the bay where board hire cost 400 rupees per hour, but didn’t find the break too good while he surfed.20160330_141602

IMGP1302For dinner we visited Little Tuna restaurant which is located next to No1 Roti shop.  The restaurant has a really chilled out vibe, with large floor cushions to sit on at low tables. It has hammocks to relax in, and there was a really beautifully lit garden.  The owner obviously spends a lot of time surfing as the restaurant is decorated with pictures of him surfing and his surfboard.20160330_193958

20160330_205735The sushi at Little Tuna was delicious, we enjoyed Rainbow and Fuji sushi with a side salad.  It was all freshly made and tasted incredible.  We also tried our first lassi drinks here too which are like a fruit milkshake made with curd.  The food here was a little pricier than some of our other meals on the trip, but was completely worth it.  We spent 3000 rupees in total for sushi, deserts, lassi drinks and tea.20160330_195227

20160330_195235After our meal we decided to walk off our food with a moonlit walk along the beach.  There is a lovely atmosphere at the beach.  It is lit up with pretty lights and is quite busy with restaurants and people walking. A lovely end to the day.
