  • A big beach, small swimming area. Good rental services, food, music, great view at sunset. Nice place to relax. But can be crowded as its close to Naha. easy bus access. BBQ areas with tent rentals.  more »
  • The beach was beautiful. Spent my time to watch sunset and sunrise. And there is a park next to the beach. The park is peaceful and I even watched flamingo. Even though I went there with knowing cold ...  more »

  • The sea is beautiful here although there's many hotels and other buildings surrounding it. I think it is the closest beach to Naha which is worth visiting, but if you want to see a more natural setting you have to go farther northwards.
  • Easy to reach and free more or less. If you ride a bike it's very easy to get close to the beach area. BBQing is ok here so bring your own stuff and cook out. Plenty of covered areas. You can reserve these ahead of time but unless it is mid summer or holiday it isn't required.
  • 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 clean and friendly facilities. Good for BBQ if u are a big group.
  • 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.
