  • Close to tourist Mihama, along the coast also Steak restaurant and bar. Go out on local citizens and U.S. military bases, such as play is. Twilight stroll on but the atmosphere is fun. Promenade along the coast have been from the Mihama, locals and military people are jogging. I think to little though pegli who stayed in Mihama, and exotic and fun.

  • The water is decently clear but not as much as Tropical Beach further south. However the playground here makes up for it. This park is definitely more geared towards families with younger children, but it's a great little park for joggers, bikers, and dog walkers, too. It's pretty crowded in the summer, so keep that in mind if you're planning an outing with lots of people. The parking is severely lacking if you don't like walking, but there's plenty to see and visit if you park further away and check out all the little shops along the way!
  • The Okinawa experience is delightfully calm and serene. Stopping by the park at sunset allows for a warm ocean breeze to refresh while blowing away the cares of the world as you look out into clear waters and well maintained beaches. This is certainly not the most visited park and beach front, not is it the best beach to lay in the sun for an afternoon, but the lack of traffic allows for a quiet pause on a busy day to rest and relax, taking in the beauty of Japan's coastline.
  • Wonderful park! Not a ton of shade close by, but kiddos can cool off in the ocean if needed. Public parking lot just a few feet away.
  • Perfect family day, take the youngins and dont forget the sunscreen!
  • Beautiful beach. Rivals the beaches in the Gulf of Mexico.
