Nice and clean beach

It is not the best and it is not the worst. Growing up around beaches my entire life left me like "meh" especially during the day. However, it does have a beautiful view in the evening, hence the name "Sunset Beach." The beach is also roped off for safer swimming and have life guards on duty. The sea wall is... More

Disappointing views during the day, but the sunset in the evening was great! There are some cocktail bars on the 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
