Best Beach BBQs’ in Mirissa – A seafood buffet with a beachside twist

The little island of Sri Lanka sits below its giant neighbour, India, in the Indian Ocean. The pearl of the Indian Ocean, as it is sometimes described has known several names throughout history. Before its independence Sri Lanka was called Ceylon, before the British colonization it was known as Serendib and many centuries ago, Taprobane. Sri Lanka has always been thought of as a tranquil paradise. Marco Polo is said to have referred to it as “undoubtedly the finest island in the world”. To get a true sense of what he meant, pay a visit to the beach in Mirissa. Hotel properties are located on the beach front, so you will have front row seats to the breathtaking view.

The island’s beaches are its most attractive feature. Sun kissed white sands stretch endlessly beside the aquamarine waters of the ocean, as tall palms sway in the warm tropical breeze. There is nothing more heavenly than a visit to one of these tropical beaches, such as the private beach of CASA Colombo Collection Mirissa. Enjoy a spectacular sunset from a cushioned lounger followed by a candlelit dinner on the beach.

A visit to this coastal town is not complete until you have savoured the ocean’s bounty. The catch of the day consists of the freshest of seafood: lobster, squid, prawns and more. Why not fire up the grill for a barbeque right on the beach, with the tide rolling in and if you are lucky some nesting turtles for company. Give the seafood some Sri Lankan flair with zest and spice that will make the food pop with flavour. A special occasion may call for some champagne to start with, a couple of sizzling steaks on the grill and an elegant dessert to finish.
