I was really surprised. It was a hot weekend day, the sun was shining, and nearly no one was at the beach! Only a few people. And the beach is absolutely beautiful. Nice sand, no garbage...

The water is still too cool in mid-May for most people to go swimming, but the town is quiet before the summer rush and you can have the beach all to yourself.

Lovely white sand beach in downtown Shirahama. There are plenty of places to stay nearby and also a number of public hot spring baths to enjoy! Sunset here was beautiful.

Holding my wife’s hand and walking on the soft sand which we enjoyed our romantic moment. Shirahama beach is a pretty nice romantic beach and must spend 30min there for a little walk with your love.

We visited Shirahama in winter but still find this beach very beautiful and inviting. The water is clear and the sand is fine. It also a good walk along the beach on a nice day.

Beautiful view of the sea and its soft sandy beaches. Definitely a good place to take photographs. Waters are really clear and if you have the time and if weather is good enough, it will be a wonder place to have a swim.

It's definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in Japan (except Okonawa) but who wants beaches for trip to Japan? Shirahama is nice beach but far less better than other world class beach resorts. Shirahama and Wakayama area has so many nice and wonderful sites...More
