4.0
#1 of 98 in Nature in Shikoku
Take a stroll along Katsurahama Beach, a picturesque stretch of sand lined with tall pine trees. A small shrine on top of a jutting rocky cliff offers scenic views of the crescent-shaped beach and the thunderous waves crashing against its shores. View the statue of Ryoma Sakamoto, a famous Kochi samurai, have a picnic, or visit the small museum and aquarium. Swimming is prohibited on the beach, due to the dangerously strong currents.

  • Kochi's famous scenic spots. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I think that if it is sunny it was cloudy the day I went, but more good views. Nice views from the beach is the shrine of the Western Cape which has a small Observatory, and Dragon horse statue on the East side of the opposite Center of Katsura Beach located in Katsura Beach Aquarium. There is a souvenir shop near the parking lot. You can go by bus for sightseeing so far comes from Kochi station or car rental.

  • Hear from the Kochi city closer to hotels, tourist, went to the Katsura beach. Arrived in about 30 minutes by bus. You could spend hours is no sandy beach, but ryoma Sakamoto recalled, was dazed.

  • Emerald green color of the water is so beautiful and attentive, this beach is very nice views. Enjoy 10 minutes even on rainy days, but also wants to come in the summer.

  • Katsurahama is a pretty okay beach with great views. Definitely recommended if you're wanting to visit the ocean but are limited to the Kochi City area. During the summertime, the fireworks shows are enjoyable!
  • Beautiful beach. A great place to relax for a few hours!
  • Nice view, don’t miss it if you are in kochi!
  • Beautiful, relaxing beach but no swimming :(
  • A nice beach where... you are not allowed to swim! Hey, come on Japan. The shrine is cute. it's a Pokemon Stop it seem so many people can be found there playing.
