Nagata Inakahama, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

(170+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
Take in the unspoiled beauty of the white sand beach at Nagata Inakahama, a quiet stretch of coast with clear waters and picturesque views. Go for a walk or swim, snap some photos, and relax on the sand. One of the main highlights here happens between May and August: at night, you can witness the rare loggerhead turtle coming ashore to lay its eggs. In one of nature's most interesting life cycles, around 500 turtles visit here each year, the same beach they were born on 10 to 20 years prior. Put Nagata Inakahama and other Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho attractions into our Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
