“Beautiful beach in West Japan”
Review of Shirahama Beach

Reviewed August 11, 2013

Shirahama Beach is a beautiful spot. The sand may be from imported from Australia, but the water is stunning, the palm trees look fantastic and there are food and drink opportunities at every section - as well as a natural hot springs further up the beach. In summer it is hugely busy, so make sure to book accommodation in advance.

Apparently the sand is imported from Australia, and I'm inclined to believe it as tr sand in the surrounding beach is more like gravel.
We went there in mid-August by car, and that costs around ¥15000, and parking ranged from ¥1000-¥2000 per day.
It is crowded, and most of the people are sleeping in the sun. The sand is beautiful, as well as the water. But the water is warm. Draw your own conclusions.

It's a nice beach if you miss real beaches, but be prepared to pay a premium for the experience.

Very good view. You can swim from April to October. But at summer so many people here.
