  • I arrived in this place in September. There were no tourists. All shops and stores have been closed. The beach is virtually empty, except for two or three couples. Sometimes visited families with kids. Sometimes young people at the photo session. Quietly and calmly. I had a rest. It was here that I found solitude, which was looking for. Light sand, turquoise water. Fish jumping out of water and flat falling back into the water. Carriers, scurrying across the sand-groups of two or three, beaks scanning sand. Pacific Gull over the water in search of fish. one thing confused me. Dog walkers with the hosts on the beach, and the hosts were without bags and scoops. Debris and shards of glass, not too pleased, but I'm not on lamented locals and tourists that it left behind. It is in this Monsieur I vacationed as anywhere else.

  • Used in the two-day weekend in late August. Ford is a shallow sea. High transparency and excellent. From breakfast area residents have clean beach is very beautiful. Dog companion, so many people where I played. Could build a tent, close to the dog Café is also very helpful. Nice toilet.

  • If possible, secure parking space in front of the beach, it is useful. Sand because I think transparency is good, but many people in the summer time too much feeling. And shallow so families better.

  • Great beach with a lot of parking, but a bit expensive (1,500JPY)
  • Little or no waves. Water was greenish. For the rest it's cool. I preferred shirahama
  • It is always a good idea to come to Sotoura beach. It is less crowded, cleaner and waves are not high so it is more appropriate for couple who want some alone time or families with kids.
  • Nice place summer
  • It was a very beautiful sea 活kimashita during the winter. There is parking free of charge along the coast, but during the summer months the Park car away should. Collecting glass and shells along the coast!
