Nice and clean beach

Good music and facilities. Could do with a clean up. Some rubbish on the beach and maybe the lifeguards couldn give it a clean during low tide. Mainly Chinese tourists from the hotels can be a little noisy at times but the next beach along is a little cleaner.

Made the mistake of traveling from Naha City to Sunset Beach in the morning. When we arrived we were disappointed because of its appearance during low tide. We spent the day in the American Village and returned later at high tide. The beach looked MUCH nicer then and the sunset was gorgeous too! The beachfront was also a lot busier... More

This is my favorite daytime beach for small children, toddlers, as the beach is combed and the water is netted. There are facilities and multiple restaurants/bars.

Nice little beach and good for kids. There is an outdoor bar nearby that also serves food (great fries!). Tables and chairs are available, but they fill up quickly. Nice to sit in the shade with a beverage.

Not the cleanest or nicest beach in Okinawa, but it is very convenient to the Chatan/American Village area. Worth a visit, especially if you are lucky enough to actually see a sunset! A walk along the water's edge is also pretty nice and there is a paved pathway that takes you pretty far. Not my top choice for swimming, but... More

It is really relaxing to hang out in the gazebos and the beach is very nice. Great for little kids. My daughter had a blast.

This beach is a great place to just sit and hang out for a while. The sunsets on this side of the island are beautiful. The best part about sunset beach is how close it is to the American Village where there is plenty of shopping, bars and restaurants. There is also a restaurant and bar right on the beach... More

The beach itself is very small, and sheltered by the estuary. It faces the setting sun, which is a brilliant requirement if you want to watch a sunset! The beach has a cement like staircase for about half of it, which provides a great seating area to watch the sunset and appears popular with fitness enthusiasts, many people run or... More
