Mirissa South Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 1 photos


The beautiful waters of Mirissa Beach may look as inviting as a warm bath but the turquoise water hide dangerous rip tides and string currents. You won?t have been in the water long before you feel the strong tug of the water as your feet try to dig into the soft sand beneath your feet. You definitely don?t want to underestimate the powerful currents in this bay and you are strongly advised to stay close to the shore. During our time at Mirissa we saw more than one person get into trouble and at one point we had to rush to the help of a young girl who got into difficulty when body boarding. If you are not a confident swimmer, stick to paddling or shallow swimming while at Mirissa.
