  • Artificial beach is a white sand beach. I came by car. Parking was free. Compared to the waves on the beach, very good, good water quality was great. Let me attach a photo.

  • This is one of the nicer beaches on Okinawa. It has free parking but it is limited so get there early. Beach use is free and it has restrooms and changing rooms. Additionally you can rent umbrellas and sun shades for larger crowds. You can bring your own tents but will be required to set them up behind the rentals. There is a fair amount of open beach to use and the swimming area is netted so wildlife, such as jellyfish, can get in. Additionally, there are grassy areas and a park nearby if you want to take a break from the water. There is no snorkeling allowed; flotation devices (rings, tubes, water wings) are allowed but are limited to personal sizes (no multi-person rafts). It is a great place to spend a sunny day!
  • Very Nice! From kokusai dori street, You can get here about 90 Min by bicycle. (There is a bicycle rental shop)
  • Very nice beach, great installations, you can shower for 100y, there's lockers and also a shop where you can get drinks and snacks. The water is calm, translucid and warm. Nice place to take your kids.
  • Probably one of the nicest beaches I've been to so far. There is parking for no cost. There is bathrooms. There is a roped off area. And if you want to there's lots of areas you can reserve for parties.
  • Great beach with soft sand for the little ones. There is a small blue seal ice cream shop, restrooms and showers and water activities offered.
