Katsurahama Beach, Kochi

(4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Unlike the old days, was very commercialised. Explore thought it was easy, but as well of untouched nature. The sharp attention as of today has very strong winds, high waves 浚wa waves to not broadcast. I walked with the family at the high school of being 浚わ feet in the waves, heh reminded me of that.

  • I visited 10 years Buri. Pre-paid parking at 400 Yen (normal car) will take is still characterized by beautiful beaches. Katsura beach waves are rough, steep deep undersea. Please please do not swim.

  • 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!
