Raining in Mirissa? Here are some romantic things you can do

Have you found yourself nestled in Mirissa during off-peak season? Torrential downpours usually grace the southern coastal towns between the months of May to September, which could sometimes dampen your mood too – especially if you had a whole day of lying on the beach planned out.

But, don’t let that stop you from having the most romantic holiday with your partner – plan spa treatments to enjoy a lovely Sri Lankan meal together! Here are a list of fun things you can do with your significant other, when it rains.

1. Get A Massage

Treat yourself and your partner to a soothing massage by an expert masseuse! The sound of the rain pelting hard against the roof might also add to your therapeutic experience; whether you’re getting an Ayurvedic massage or a Balinese treatment. Visit the Secret Root Spa in Mirissa and enjoy a wide variety of treatments to choose from. Soothe your senses as you doze away to the beautiful sounds of nature, with birds chirping and palm trees swaying in the breeze. This spa uses traditional techniques to promote rest and relaxation of the mind and body that will leave you both feeling refreshed and rejuvenated for the rest of your holiday in Mirissa.

2. Stay in, sleep in

When it’s raining hard and there’s simply no choice but to stay indoors; the best thing to do is to immerse in the beauty of having nothing to do – at least you can blame this one of the weather! If your accommodation has a balcony or a verandah, sit there with a glass of your favourite drink and enjoy watching the rain with your partner. Witness the beauty of the tropical rain down here in paradise with your better half. 

3. Secret Beach 

Just like the name suggests, Secret Beach is a secluded beach that’s not the easiest to reach. A rough-20 minute walk through a small village and shaded pathways will lead you to the island’s best kept secret! It’s a hidden gem around the corner of the main beach. The rocks that surround the beach creates a small pool of clear, blue water. If you want to stay away from the rain you can relax under the shade of the beach umbrellas as you sip on a refreshing drink from the Secret Beach Bar. You can choose from not one but three beaches at Mirissa Secret Beach. 

  • Blue lagoon right opposite the Secret Beach Bar with hammocks and day beds where you can lie around all day. 
  • Palm cove situated around the corner from the Blue Lagoon where the jungle meets the beach with ideal natural cover from the rain.
  • Shelly Beach to the right of the Blue Lagoon as you look out at the horizon, with crystal clear pools and a blowhole.

4. Romantic Dinner 

Surprise your partner with a romantic dinner! Mirissa town and the beach stretch is dotted with a variety of restaurants, offering fusion cuisine to satisfy your taste buds. A candlelight dinner, with the thunderous sound of the ocean waves adds a certain romantic charm to the night. Whether you want to enjoy a glass of whiskey at Zephyr Restaurant, satisfy your sushi cravings at Papa Mango or enjoy sumptuous seafood at Adora Mirissa Beach Restaurant, Mirissa has it all. You can top the night off by grooving to some tunes at Kama Mirissa; known for its nightlife and excellent views. Interested in more ideas? Here are some of our best ideas for a date night!
