Rent a bike – Explore the Mirissa country side!

Posted by:

Distance from ‘ Your Dream Home’ our holiday house for rent in Mirissa ( start from house )

Mirissa is not all about the beach, if you head inland, on the jungle side it has so much more to offer and cycling provides the perfect way to explore the stunning landscapes. The pretty flat terrain makes it ideal to spend a day cycling.

All it takes is to venture a few kilometres ‘off the beaten track’ and you’re soon rewarded by sightings of exotic birds, & buffalos grazing by the paddy fields. There’s lots of small country lanes and paths around Garaduwa Lake all waiting to be explored and discovered.

You can cycle all the way to Weligama from Mirissa through the countryside without using any main roads. As an orientation, from our house find your way to the quaint & little ‘Mirissa Train Station’, cross over the tracks and start to explore!

Our tips:

If it’s been raining at night the paths can get a bit muddy & on warmer days make sure to take some water with you !

Again we recommend starting early…if possible at sunrise 🙂
