Nakijin Beaches

Chigunu Beach is located on Kouri Island in Nakijin Village, north part of the main island of Okinawa.

Kouri Island is remote island, but it is connected by the Kouri bridge, so you can go there by car.

Chigunu Beach is a small and natural beach.

There is a power spot called the “Cave of Beginnings” in Ryukyu mythology, so some people come for that.

Since the beach is very narrow, we recommend that you go there with the intention of taking pictures in the “Cave of Beginnings” rather than swimming.
