Sandambeki Rock Cliff, Shirahama-cho

(3.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
See the handiwork of the Pacific Ocean during an exploration of Sandambeki Rock Cliff, a coastal stretch featuring attractive and impressive rock formations. Take in the sight of the ocean battering the 50 m (164 ft) tall cliff, eroded into tiers that appear both rugged and ordered. Head down the elevator to explore a cave said to have been a secret hiding place for the Kumano-suigun navy during the late Heian period (794-1185 CE), and take the time to scrabble around on the rocks to the north of the cliff, snapping photos of the interesting formations. Arrange to visit Sandambeki Rock Cliff and other attractions in Shirahama-cho using our Shirahama-cho vacation route planner.
