Nagata Inakahama, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

4.1
#1 of 37 in Beaches in Kagoshima Prefecture
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.

  • A half hour bus from miyanoura port is located this huge beach of white sand and the sea turquoise, hot and transparent. During our visit, in full on Friday afternoon, there were 5 other people besides us including 2 only bathed. Careful there nothing except a drinks dispenser on the next road and especially not one gram of shadow. In full sun if you do bathe of madness even heat your feet in the water. But really worth it. The few buses that pass (the last pass in the direction of the port is at 15 h 08) we have restricted our stop at 40 minutes and did not see information center (?) on the turtles, who seems to be close.

You can go to sea turtle spawning observation from the season went will also sea turtle egg laying tours country beach, watching the sunset. Autumn and spring are kuchinoerabujima sunset will be hidden on the island. This is the site you want to visit on the evening of the day when tourists on the island of Yakushima.
