#1 of 547 in Beaches in Japan
Marina Beach
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. Put Katsurahama Beach into our Kochi tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Just another beach so nothing special about it. Swimming is forbidden from the beach because of strong currents but there are a couple of walkways and there is a small shopping mall selling souvenirs ...  more »

  • 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.
  • The beech is good because it's accessible from Kochi city, but there are far better beeches to visit either to the east or west of Kochi prefecture. Though to get them requires a car.
  • Beautiful beach and ocean view. Strong currents so no swimming or sunbathing.
  • Used to came here many years ago. It was a quiet beach with decent view.
  • Beautiful location!
