  • Last is a famous spot for snorkeling. Pay parking only faction so far couldn't see the values. "At the end" from the cliffs of sea in the feeling was good.

  • I love it here. Well worth the drive. The view is breathtaking. It's so relaxing. Best place on island to spend the day.
  • I kind of liked this a lot better before it was commercialized. There is a paid parking area that closes so make sure you car is out before the lock the gates. Probably one of the hottest diving spots on island but OVER CROWDED at times. The water here can be unforgiving very quickly so just be careful. Maeda flats just a little bit up the road is a great place for family to come out and snorkel and even take an adventure through a small blue water cave.
  • In my opinion, there are way better diving locations around Okinawa than Maeda. I never really understood why this place is so popular. The cave and the fish that eagerly come up to you expecting food are pretty cool, but the over abundance of divers and snorkelers around you makes me feel like im in an ocean of people rather than marine life.
  • A MUST visit if you are on Okinawa. It's tough if you don't have a car. First, enter the pay 100 yen per hour parking lot and walk around and take pictures. Find the stairs and head down to the beach. Jump in and see all the amazing fish! It's like a movie scene there are so many, so close to you :) Once you're in the water head toward the right to find the Blue Cave! I stalked a bunch of scuba divers while I was snorkeling. You can enter the cave, climb through and jump out the back right into the ocean! Very cool, will return soon.
  • Amazing snorkeling and diving. Must visit
