Nagata Inakahama, Kumage-gun Yakushima-cho

(4.1/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • One of the most beautiful beaches on Yakushima Island. The sand is so soft and beautiful. Here you can see the famous thing about turtles. Appears only when the babies around can be seen only in the evening. In recent years, the Administration should go with. In order to keep the natural environment:. Minor costs are incurred.

  • In Yakushima Island, followed by steep mountains are one of the few beaches. It is also a loggerhead sea turtle eggs in Japan. Beautiful sandy beaches spread better.

  • Speaking of Yakushima Island, and either sea mountain images are stronger than I, but was surprised by the beauty of the Sea also. Unfortunately this day was rainy, but still beautiful emerald green waters and white sand beaches, the beach was where sea turtles lay their eggs only-and I thought.
