The beach is everywhere in Oki. This stretch was across the way from out AirBnB so we walked over. There was no one out and it was very peaceful. There was a trail for walking for miles if you so desired.

The Araha beach has a wide variety of water activities to choose from. The beach swimming area is rather small compared to Sunset beach. You can do a lot of activities from here with kids though.

Pretty blue water views. Paved walking paths and fun for the whole family. There are public restrooms and vending machines which is always a plus.

We ended up on this beach one late afternoon during our stay. This part is more Westernized as the crowd are mostly local Foreigners, more American. There's also some Kids activity going on when we got there. This part has a beautiful playground with a...More

Araha Park and Beach have it all for beach-goers: a good-sized space to swim (though the water is too warm in the summer!), beach, rental umbrellas and chairs, volleyball, picnic tables, a concession stand, some water activities, and showers/toilets.
