Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, Hakui

(4.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Occasionally traveled to the Hakui drive. I enjoyed not experienced in other Beach was surprised by the road traffic Act on road handling is exhilarating. Thought a bit more crowded or not, but because of the high winds or large supermarket vacant and enjoyed the drive twice. I think it is worth a stop if you're up near the.
