Beautiful clear turquoise water

Car parking is across the road. No swimming allowed but lots of banana boat and glass bottom boat activities. White sand and gorgeous turquoise waters. So beautiful.

We were here in off-season so the place was absolutely not overcrowded. This is the only positive thing I can mention about this beach plus maybe the picturesque walk around the cape on top of the cliffs, only 10 minutes from the beach. If you come here by bus expect an 80-minute-ish ride and a good half an hour walk... More

This is the best beach near Yomitan. The sand was clean and well tended. There is a roped area for swimming and a life guard, so a great place to bring kids.

It is a large area but if you visit during the winter months, it is rather lifeless and boring. Looks like plenty of activities available during the summer but can give it a skip if you are there during the winter.

It took us over 90 minutes to get there from Naha - and quite frankly - it wasn't worth it. The hotel that runs the beach has it sectioned off so swimmers are stuck to one section while the activity business runs 10 minute jet ski tows, paddle boarding, etc. there's a whole other stretch of the beach on the...

This beach is very clean! The swim area is roped off and there are lifeguards on duty. There is a snack bar onsite, as well as clean bathrooms. Wear your water shoes as there is some coral in the water. Umbrellas and chairs cost yen, but we took our own and sat in the back behind the paid chairs.

We went there in the evening. It's a great place to relax and to watch the sunset. It was quiet and relaxing. The water was very clear... We didn't swim tho. We only walked along the beach.

There are much better beaches in Okinawa. Don't waste gas and time for trying this one. There was construction on the shore and beach itself is tiny anyway.
