Nice small beach next to the Orion Hotel but almost nothing is allowed including leaving the beach.... We tried to go for a walk and were stopped from leaving the beach area. Apparently you are not allowed in to the non marked areas.

海灘很漂亮但對我和小小孩來說這個海灘的沙石有點多&大、走起來腳底板很痛。 旅遊旺季造訪,更衣室、沐浴間稍嫌不足~ If you drive there, park at P9 park lot which is closest.

It is really one of the best beaches in Okinawa. But water temperature in end April - early May is not so warm (about 23 C).

This is a nice stretch of beach to stroll along. As it's Jan, the beach is not crowded at all and one can take own time to enjoy it.
