    Going to Sri Lanka in April 2015. From Colombo flying to Mattala & then traveling to Mirissa. Can anyone recommend reasonable return transfer to and from airport. Public transport no problem. Need websites/timetables and/or costs

    snorkelling in Mirissa

    by Masha_M Online Now Jan 20, 2014 at 11:26 PM

    How is snorkelling in Mirissa? Should I take my snorkelling gear with me or is it a waste of energy?
    Thanks!

    do I need to book ahead?

    by Masha_M Online Now Jan 8, 2014 at 6:25 AM

    We're planning to stay at a mid range place in Mirissa in February. Do you think that we should book ahead or is it possible to find a nice place on the spot? We're planning to stay for about 2 weeks, do you think we can get a good bargain? Thanks

    accomidations in Mirissa?

    by vample Online Now Nov 13, 2003 at 1:51 AM

    I'm planning a trip to Sri Lanka for mid January and plan to stay in Mirissa for 3 days. Any suggestions on where to stay? Paradise Beach Club seems extravagant, particularly when most others seem to be around US$ 5-10, rather than28 and we're just there to kick back n relax on the beach. I want something close/on the beach, with a nice atmosphere and view if possible, clean, air-conditioned. I've seen places mentioned with cabana's and bungalows in Lonely Planet, but I'm not sure what they mean - just small individual buildings rather than rooms in a single building? Also, is there first class on the train down to Weligama or Matara from Colombo? LP lists one *back* but not down. I cant seem to find a good schedule of the routes, times and class options online.
