A very beautiful beach where sea turtles will come at night to nest and hatch. During the daytime it is very very hot and sunny and the water so crystal blue.

I was there during the season turtles lay eggs. Local people are trying hard to maintain the population of turtles and run turtle viewing sessions so that tourists won't disturb turtles laying eggs, which means that you cannot just go and look at them by yourselves (in theory you can as locals cannot stop you from doing it but you...

This was a nice beach but there really isn't much to see, just average. You will probably notice a shrine in a cave which was pretty cool.

Unfortunately the weather was cloudy when we arrived at the beach--but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. We were able to grab some amazing photos. There was no one around at the time and we were able to relax in peace after an exhausting hike that morning.

I visited the beach with my guide (from Yakushima Experience). In winter there is not much to see here, but we enjoyed a nice walk in the rain along the sandy beach. In summer, this is the best place to watch sea turtles lay eggs!

English is below. 砂や水の色は素敵だし、人も非常に少なかったので、超ゆっくりできました。9月だったので海亀はいませんでした。おそらく、そのおかげで、人が少なかったです。 水は透明で、魚や貝殻などをたくさん見られました。他のビーチに比べて、清潔感がありました。岩から離れたら流れはそんなに強くありませんが、岩の近くの流れは強いので、十分な注意が必要です。 The sand at the water color was wonderful and there were so few people (at times, none), so it was so relaxing and wonderful. It was September, so there were no sea turtles. The water was so clear, so I was able to see a lot of fish and shells. Compared to the other beaches,... More

We arrived just in time for the sunset. Lovely white sanded beach. Although we didn't swim in the ocean, we enjoyed the sunset and tranquility of the beach.
