Nanjo

(3.4/5 based on 3,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: theme parks, historic sites, nature
With a long Pacific coastline, Nanjo offers fantastic views of the ocean from high cliffs covered with lush greenery, as well as from its long sandy beaches. Surrounded by distinctive limestone formations, Nanjo stands out as much for its nature as for the city itself. Tours of Nanjo usually include a visit to a UNESCO-protected shrine hidden in a long cave-corridor overlooking an island, or a visit to a cave in which you can explore ancient stalagmites and stalactites. A large theme park focusing on Okinawa wildlife and culture provides good entertainment and educational opportunities, while snake-charmers and folk dancers provide exotic street-level entertainment.

Where to stay in Nanjo

Like in most cities in Okinawa, Nanjo offers a contrast of basic lodgings and expensive, fancy resorts. Hotels tend follow the coastline south and east of Nanjo, with luxurious options perched on the hilltop above the city offering views of Nakagusuku Bay. Bed & breakfast-type pensions are the most common mid-range options, but you can also find inexpensive "ryokan" (traditional guesthouses) close to the beach. Inexpensive guesthouses can be found on Ojima Island, just off the coast and accessible via bridge.
