Chanced upon the beach and was captivated by it. Went there during sunset and it was so beautiful with the island in the backdrop. Wasn’t very big but was enough for us to stay there for a while to enjoy the sunset. Blissful...

A man made beach looks good but is closed for the late months of the year. No waves so more of a bay rather than a beach.

Nice, sandy beach next to clear waters with some sun beds to rent, but better to bring own towel. There’s not too much shade and sun can be relentless, so be ready and bring a lot of sun block. Lifeguards on duty are quite strict...More

We had just about 2 hours to shoot photos on the beach. So we had our outfits and tripods ready! Nearby parking is available the woman manning it was super polite! We had a lot of fun taking photos on this beautiful beach!

Came here in early May whilst driving around the island. The beach wasn't really that special nor was it particularly busy, probably because it was an overcast day. Need to be careful with parking in the vicinity as some places charge crazy prices.

A nice beach by all accounts but nothing to go crazy about. There are nicer beaches around the island to go to.

A very basic beach, very little great about it, not sure why this is highly rated, even Hong Kong has better beaches, wouldn’t recommend staying on the main Okinawa island for beaches, should to a day trip to other islands for the beaches
