Cape Hedo, Kunigami-son

4.1
#1 of 19 in Things to do in Kunigami-son
The northernmost tip of Okinawa Island, Cape Hedo combines far-reaching ocean views and a rocky coastline. Walk along lush green trails that hug the cliffs' edge, gazing over clear blue water crashing against the rocks. Drop a coin in one of the many boxes to pay tribute to the gods of sea and wind, and look for the white stone sculpture of a mythical creature with the body of a fish and the head of a bird. If you're itching to get into the water, you'll find plenty of good spots for snorkeling and scuba diving.

  • 12/20 visits on the part of the Yanbaru visit 3-piece set (Okinawa rail Observatory, major Stone Forest mountains). Click here to see upcoming surf may on the other hand give greater stone forest mountain grandeur of the East China Sea, the East China Sea. Click here if you would taste here divides the free and fully barrier-free to focus on? I think I said, and also great resting place if you shop there is slight, we use as a resting place, in R58 climb back route 70 another route will be in. Also, forget about Okinawa monument stands here, about 40 years ago, was a United States Government will have. We think don't come up to the northernmost point of mainland. That's why I think what there worth a stop in Okinawa to look back once again.

  • Views of the magnificent cliffs shattered car rental's need to go on the northernmost main island is not to be missed. Farther and farther, Yoron Island. Boosted by going on the weak wind, would be best.

  • The northernmost end of the island. It was a superb view. I feel like have a lot of power. Yoron Island looked further. Please enter the world here and there taking pictures on the dangerous rocks so reviled. It is a responsibility. This is a spot you want to recommend visits near the large stone forest mountains and went to the North during the.

  • Pretty cool place to go see. If you live near the middle or south end of Okinawa just know this trip will take you quite a while. There is quite a bit to see walking around here, there are a few trails that take you farther west and closer to the water. Feel free to explore around a bit while you are up here as it’s not worth making multiple trips (in my humble opinion). The giant bird you see from the eastern side looking back towards the island is Yanbarukuina Observation Deck, it’s a pretty cool place to go see as well. So definitely check that out since you’re already up here.
  • Cape Hedo is a very nice scenic spot. It is a bit of a drive but the trip is part of the fun. It was cool to visit the area where 2 seas come together and there are also a few stone monuments and statues to look at. Since you are already on the north part of the island, I also recommend visiting Dai Sekirinzan Park which is only a few minutes away by car.
  • Beautiful place at the far north of the island. The drive up along the coast is worth the trip itself. Check the map to see other great places to see nearby.
  • Absolutely stunning Cape area. The water is crystal clear just next to the cliff. The Cape is close to the Dai Sekirinzan Park so it makes it a worthwhile trip up there. At the Cape there is a Cafe serving food, ice-cream and drinks. There are also a few vending machines which serve coffee alongside the normal drinks. There is a free carpark there as well as two undercover seating areas.
  • Very nice place. Couple different areas to view the ocean and land. They do have bathrooms. They do have soda machines. And there's a little store but not sure what they sell. Not many stores in the area. So definitely plan to have some munchies on hand.
