  • If you're looking for a decent beach closer to Kinser, this is the place! The sand it white and the water is clear, and while it does get pretty busy during the summer, it's still a great place to get your feet wet. When the tide is low it's very easy to walk to the end of the netted area. There's usually a guard on duty who won't want you to go outside the net and who'll ask you to stay with your younger children, regardless of the water height, and that's for everyone's safety. There's some chow nearby, including shaved ice and ice cream during the day, and there are festivals and live music nearly every weekend evening! Go to the San A nearby and make a picnic lunch date!
  • 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!
  • Nice beach with plenty of facilities
