4.3
#3 of 15 in Parks in Onna-son
Get to know the inhabitants of a protected marine environment at Cape Maeda / Cape Maeda park, a popular snorkeling and diving site rich in aquatic life and interesting rock formations. Head deep down into the underwater, wave-eroded cave just offshore, watching the color of the water change to a mysterious, evocative blue and meeting the friendly fish who swim up to divers looking for food. Beginner lessons and equipment rental give budding divers and snorkelers a good route into the popular pastimes, while an onsite restaurant and nearby beaches mean anyone not wanting to plunge into the sea will find plenty to occupy their time.

    The beach is beautiful. You see a lot of crabs and other animals at the beach. Take care of good beach shoes. We were here in the middle of August. It was só hot that it wasn't pleasant to be outside....  more »

    Chose the first dive of the child. Transparency of the sea is 80 m long and was very beautiful. It took me 20 minutes just summer vacation so we also stock runners and many tour shops, hotels and so on, before entering.

    Popular spot is the parking lot filled immediately. There was traffic jam waiting for parking. If you go on to the Blue Grotto before snorkel set is required. So don't hire in the field requires book excursions in advance. Dining room, lockers, shower is 10 minutes. Swim can enjoy the beauty.

    The famous blue cave~ unfortunately, didn't get to dive due rough current and strong wind, but if you like to dive, it's a must go place!

    Great dive site. 100 yen per hour to park and the lot is small.

    Best place to go snorkeling in Okinawa. There is a lot to explore.

Where to stay in Onna-son

Onna-son, the quiet village turned beach resort, has a number of accommodations along its coastline. With the urban area consisting of a narrow strip between the mountains and the sea, visitors rarely have to look too far back from the beach for their accommodation, and this suits Onna-son's guests just fine. Luxury and mid-range resorts predominate in Onna-son, while a couple of budget options can be sought out on slightly less scenic roads. Take a look at what's available in Okinawa, with the city offering a much wider choice of acommodations, and located less than an hour away by car.
