Surf & Yoga Mirissa is located in the third bay of Mirissa, which is a quiet end of busy Mirissa Beach. With just a hop from the beach, you reach a beautiful little bay meant for snorkelling, sun and sea bathing, or reading a book under a coconut tree. 

You can take a beach stroll to the left and reach the main beach, which has many restaurants, or do a small hike to the left and reach the hilltop to visit the other beach and the temple or observe the sunset. 

They are three surf spots in the third bay itself. On the left, you will find Parrot Rock break, Mirissa Beach, and point breaks, giving any level of surfer a great choice. Sri Lanka’s southwest coast is a wave garden with more than 15 surf spots accessible within easy reach from the camp, with most of the breaks located within 10 minutes.
