  • Sesoko station Beach, arrived at through the bridge took for quite some time by car from Naha, but in the excitement. It was crowded with bathers of pretty. Beach parking lot is 1,000 yen 1. Are quite high degree of transparency of the sea, IE island overlooking the beach is the best.

Where to stay in Motobu-cho

Most visitors to Motobu-cho opt to spend their time by the sea, so accommodations have positioned themselves accordingly. Choose from a number of beachfront hotels, resorts, and guesthouses located close to the aquarium and botanical garden, and on Sesoko Island. By the harbor in the main urban area, a few homestays and guesthouses dot the largely residential part of town. As a general rule, urban areas farther inland offer more budget-friendly rooms, whereas lodgings in non-urban areas farther inland tend to be pricier retreats making the most of the scenery and seclusion.
