Nice atmosphere but amazing few people at the beach. Friendly but rather difficult to manage only with english. But as it said. Where it is a hearth there always will be room.

Nice beach with good space for kids. Sand is a bit dark. Beach is kept clean and have life guards in season. Many people come for surfing near by. Many restaurants along side the main road.

Nice beach - a bit dirty compared to the rest of Japan. Lifeguard until 17:00 o’clock. Wave breakers makes it nice to swim at every time. There is a kids water fun park that looks really cool!

We stayed in a hotel close by the beach and it was freezing that day. I guess it's a better deal in summer.... but in winter rain, it was pretty depressing. Not much going on at all and not many shops opening. Will give Atami...More

With the beach, waves, blue water crashing in the breakwater, sand, walkways...a perfect outing spot. Not much facilities for beach activities. You just sit back and relax.

Atami Sun Beach is arguably the main attraction in the immediate area around Atami Station, and for good reason. While man made, you can have a taste of what you would experience on a tropical island or perhaps the French Riviera. Despite the continuous crowds...More

Although I visited the beach in July - the summer months when it is upposed to be crowded, it was rather empty, and it just seems for me that Japanese are not used to rest at the beach. The sand is ok, but gets very...More
