Recommended Points

Clear sea and white sand beach

The transparency of the sea is amazing.
It is a beautiful beach where you can see the transparency from the image.

There are countless large rocks

There were big rocks all over the beach, and some were resting in the shade beneath them.
It’s about 3-5m high, so I was surprised that it was bigger than I had imagined.

Abundant marine activities

There were plenty of marine activities and some on the beach.
You can enjoy various activities such as banana boating and snorkeling.

There is a place that accepts marine activities right next to the parking lot, so you may want to ask the person in charge locally.

You can feel the nature of Okinawa

The road to beach is like driving through the woods with clean, unpaved roads.

The sea and rocks from nature are very attractive.
