駐車できる台数が少ないので、混雑する週末は車を止めにくい。地元の人、内地からの観光客、アメリカ人、海外の観光客でいつもにぎわっているビーチ。泳げるスペースが狭いので、人にぶつかりそうになります。水もゴミが浮かんでいたりして汚い。 海に入らず、のんびりとバーべキューしたり、散歩するにはお勧めです。 more »The weekend so you can park a few hard to hail a car. The beach always crowded with locals and mainland tourists, Americans and foreign tourists. Will hit people in a narrow space to swim. By water or floating trash, dirty. Entering into the sea, to take a walk or have a relaxed barbecue is recommended.

We ended up on this beach one late afternoon during our stay. This part is more Westernized as the crowd are mostly local Foreigners, more American. There's also some Kids activity going on when we go... more »

Sand is great. Area is also nice. Beware of "Dangerous Jellyfish" season (currently experiencing in June) as they close off most of the water to swimming leaving waist deep water with no cool fish/things to explore. Beach is also fairly close to American Village (15 min walk) and has a Lawson's across the street. Water clarity isint the best on the island especially if windy/low to high tide. Great place to just catch rays and maybe play volleyball if the wind isint too bad.

Nice beach with rentals ranging from play sets to bbq grills with tents and seating. Playground and basketball court right on the beach side. There's a few night spots down on the north end. Can get crowded and hard to grab parking, but it is a great relaxing spot.

Nice little beach with easy access to the water. Good for watching sunset. Toilets available. Parking right next to the beach.

Great beach- some locals and many US families. You also get to see the airforce planes ✈️ flying overhead 😀

I wouldn't come here as a tourist. It's a beach for local families (mainly military). American accents of kids playing soccer and the distant view of that ugly Ferris wheel at the American village.

Where to stay in Chatan-cho
Most visitors to Chatan-cho are seeking out a beachside holiday, so naturally most accommodations in town sit right on the coast. The beach to the north offers a selection of mid-range hotels and rental apartments near the sea, while the area of waterfront development around the American Village Ferris wheel has a collection of upmarket hotels close to some of the most popular restaurants. Budget-friendly guesthouses and rentals lie in the more residential districts inland.
