Car parking is across the road. No swimming allowed but lots of banana boat and glass bottom boat activities. White sand and gorgeous turquoise waters. So beautiful.

This is the best beach near Yomitan. The sand was clean and well tended. There is a roped area for swimming and a life guard, so a great place to bring kids.

We went there in the evening. It's a great place to relax and to watch the sunset. It was quiet and relaxing. The water was very clear... We didn't swim tho. We only walked along the beach.
