    Okinawa Pref. Nanjoushi Chinen Azama
    This manmade beach, which boasts a great view of the transparent sea, is adjacent to the port used by the ferry bound for Kudaka Island (a.k.a. Island of the Gods). You can enjoy everything from sea bathing, marine sports, or barbecuing, and the swimming area is quite large. The parking lot has a large capacity as well, and there are coin lockers available along with showers, making this a convenient spot indeed.

    I came here in mid-March and it was pretty empty. Seemed like there was quite a bit of work going on - renovations, seasonal maintenance. The beach seemed nice with designated and protected swimming...

  • Naminoue Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Okinawa Pref. Nahashi Wakasa 1-25
    Located approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the Prefectural Office Station on the Okinawa Urban Monorail (Yuirail) line, Naminoue Beach is the only beach within the boundaries of Naha City. As the beach is situated close to both the airport and Kokusai-dori Street, it is common to see tourists stop off there for a quick swim on the way back to their hotel, and the beach is also a popular place for local residents to relax. Within the park area, water sports activities can be booked, and beach equipment can be purchased. Swimming is permitted between April and October.
  • Mibaru Beach and Hyakuna Beach
    Leisure / Hobbies
    Okinawa Pref. Nanjoushi Tamagusuku Hyakuna
    Mibaru Beach and Hyakuna Beach provide the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery of the southern part of Okinawa Island. Mibaru Beach is a gently shelving beach with small waves; visitors can take a boat ride in a glass-bottomed boat from a dock nearby to view the fish. Many people visit Mibaru Beach to enjoy watersports. The nearby Hykuna Beach, which is sandwiched between rocky promontories, is a sacred place where, according to legend, the creator goddess Amamikiyo came ashore from Kudaka Island; this tranquil beach is still revered by local people today. As there are no marine activity facilities here, Hyakuna is much less crowded than Mibaru Beach, making it a great place to relax.

    きらきらビーチにあるパーラーで空いてはいますが、あまり充実した施設ではなく、あまり混み合っていないので、かえってのんびり出来ました。かき氷は今ひとつでした。

Okinawa Areas

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
