  • Once the water is crystal clear, because you cannot pass a street way, laying out the car in the parking lot in front of the building, 400 Yen, coming form the building must pass beach. As a thoroughly screened the along the barbed wire is a place to go swimming in the sea, the extent to which and should be released.

  • Stopped in Shanghai Expressway drive, 200 yen admission fee and the (subject to memory when I visited a few years ago got in free) has nothing to say, look at the fine print. Was clear early, may be of admission even if there is something seen only here... in the parking lot only.

  • This was my favorite beach when I was stationed in Okinawa in the 80's. Most days we would go there and have the whole beach to ourselves. It's nice to visit it via the magic of street view after all these years.
  • We've tried out a lot of beaches here on the island in the last year. This one is by far one of the best for swimming and snorkeling and just relaxing on the beach. It's not overly crowded but has become very popular this summer. There's a lot of fish to see especially when they know you have food (they give you a hot dog usually so you can feed the fish). The fee is a bit pricey when you have a lot of people with you. For us 2 adults and one child was a total of ¥1300 plus ¥500 extra if you bring in your own tent/umbrella. It is worth it to us though as we enjoy this island and the beaches so much! You can pick sea glass and sea shells as well but I recommend coming early rather then later since others have that idea on their mind too. Definitely not as plentiful as other beaches for that but this beach is a long stretch enough to find at least a cup full of shells/glass. I believe they do serve some food as well (curry we tried). They have showers and rent out a few things. Expect a lot of people here on the weekends (parking was full almost around noon), and when weather is nice out it is best to enjoy this beach and the fish/snorkeling. Leaving the island to go back stateside and we will miss this island and this beach so much. I recommend checking this place out at least once if you come to visit or you're here for awhile!
  • Although you have to pay to park and it is per person in your car it was totally worth it. We were charged 500¥ per adult and 300¥ per child. This price includes parking, beach access, restrooms, and showers. They also have little tents with picnic tables under them you can rent for 300¥ for the day as well as food and drinks you can purchase. The staff that works there is incredibly friendly and welcoming. They do a great job keeping the beach clean and keeping everyone happy. This is definitely our beach of choice on the island. Absolutely beautiful and quiet!
  • Excellent beach with pristine water to see all kinds of sea life. You have to pay a nominal fee to use your own beach equipment but it's worth it!
  • It has a lot of fish in the beach for real not joking. The beach is very good and clean staffs speak English and friendly so I think 500yen is not really a big deal plus shower facilities and rent snorkel, tent and other stuff.
