Stayed a week. Beautiful beach, big waves. Good idea to know how to swim. Not for kiddies. Lots of beachfront bars and restaurants, some with good happy hour (half price) deals.

Mirissa beach is a great beach with very good waves to swim and bodyboard. There a lot of nice restaurants in a beach. Dinner at the beach is also very pleasant.
