Transport from Kandy to Mirissa

Hi, I am planning to Mirissa in mid of April , but can't find any direct and shorter route from Kandy, the train information I found is via Colombo. I am female travel alone, want to take a safety way.

And all guest houses in Mirissa I found is 4 nights minimum stay, but I only have 2 night there, is it possible to find accommodation after I arrive there.

Thanks if any one can advise me.

I found some information there is direct bus from Bandarawella or Wellawaya or Ella to Matara.

So I plan to stay in Haputale or Ella for transit and get the direct bus. But not sure which city I should stay better for getting the early bus and has seat.

Is Ella or Bandarawella / Wellawaya the starting for Matara bus, anyone can advise how long the bus take and the time of bus off.

Thanks~

There are direct buses (# 23) from Bandarawela to Matara. The journey will take 6.5-7 hours. The buses are not that frequent. I believe there is a bus departing Bandarawela around 7 am. Best is to ask locally when you get there.

There are so many guest house in Dalawella. It's near to Mirissa, try that area.
