Mibaru Beach and Hyakuna Beach (新原ビーチ(百名ビーチ))
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.

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.
