There are a variety of places to stay within Mirissa, as well as a range of different accommodation types. We found that the best area to stay is right near Mirissa Beach. Here you’ll find the most food and shop options. We stayed at Little Pink House which is a short walk from the beach in a quiet local street. We definitely recommend staying here as it’s like having your own home. You’ll find a little pink house on a small block of land with its own garden, kitchen and bedroom. Every morning the lovely owner also comes by and makes a delicious breakfast! You definitely won’t want to leave here.

    I have been there and I personally don’t like it much. I think coconut tree is much better than parrot rock, especially for photography.
