  • This beach has a playground, a pirate ship for kids, basketball court, and you can walk around the beach as well. There are a few small shops for drinks. It's a fun beach. 
  • It is a beautiful beach located in Chatan,. I thought I seen in the Naha area just beautiful sandy beaches and sea is in. Not too crowded, clean and with a sense of a private beach. Parking is also fully equipped.

  • Large beach area with netted area. At low tide not a lot of room to swim. Lots of beach and a pirate ship.

  • The rock formations add an interesting dimensions to the scenery. We actually came back again the day after to watch the sun set! There are washrooms and places for you to bbq around the park, it's really relaxing and I daw many ppl running /biking along the boardwalk. The traffic to get here is not very good though, as with seaside towns, traffic is always backed up. Luckily we were always able to find (free) parking!
  • I liked this beach because there was a lot to do and the locals were very nice. You can do the following Play basketball on the courts Kids can play on the pirate playground Run along the coast Play on the beach (soccer football ect.) Swim in netted area Jet ski ride $ Bannana boat raft rides $ The only downside is that the netted area to swim in is small.
  • Nice Beach,but you better make sure the swimming area is open. Now get this, They close the "netted in area" to swimmers because someone saw a shark up the coast, but they let people swim outside the net a few yards up from the net in the open area, and if that is not crazy enough, they are still giving rides on the Banana Boat and other rides out in open water where people are falling off all the time. I would not of believed it if I did not see it.
  • Nice place to go fishing, running, picnic, swimming, new playground for toddlers with water view. I love Araha Beach.
  • Beutiful public beach with clean sand and water with a very nice pirate ship playground
