Recommended points

Sandy beach that continues for about 600m

The long white sand beach is attractive, isn’t it?

The sand is very smooth.

Well equipped

Facilities such as restroom and coin locker, shower ect are provided.

There are shops and vending machines, so it’s very convenient.

The promenade along the beach is beautiful

There is a promenade along the beach, where palm trees are lined up beautifully and the scenery like Okinawa spreads out, and there were people taking a walk and playing with children.

I think the walk while looking at the beach is the best.

You can do BBQ

Reservations are required, but BBQ is also available.

It’s easy to understand because the locations are different, such as the barbecue area and beach equipment rental area.

Indian Oak in Araha Park

There are many places to play such as “Indian Oak” and basketball court in Araha Park.

As I mentioned above, “Araha Beach” has a lot of rentals and activities.

For rental, there are floats and umbrellas.

Surrounding Area

American Village

American Village is lined with buildings with an American concept, including “fashion brands,” “general stores,” and “restaurants” for young people.

It’s especially popular with young people, and it’s a great place for Instagram.

Personally, I like the sunset from Depot Island in American Village.

Araha Resort Arapana(アラハリゾートアラパナ)

“Araha Resort Arapana” has various types of rooms, from luxury rooms with ocean views to rooms where backpackers can stay without meals.
We recommend that you choose a room that suits your needs.

It takes about 10 seconds to walk to “Araha Beach”, so you can literally reach the beach in seconds.


Araha Beach is a very beautiful beach with Araha Park thatmany people take a walk around it, and it is a place loved by the locals.

In my opinion, I had the impression this beach is beautiful, but the beaches of Onna Village and Yomitan Village are good for the transparency of the sea.

Thank you for reading until the end.
