Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, Hakui

(360+ reviews on the web)
Scenic Drive
Take a ride along Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, a sandy beach that acts as a seaside road for bikes, cars, and buses. Because the sand here has a smaller than average diameter, rainwater easily passes through into its deeper layers, allowing it to compact tightly together. This creates a surface suitable for automobiles, and the thrill of riding, driving, and touring right by the sea attracts locals and tourists alike. Stop off for some swimming, a little beachcombing, and some local specialities, including grilled clams cooked on beach barbecues. Plan to visit Chirihama Nagisa Driveway and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Hakui attractions using our Hakui family vacation planner.
