Chirihama Beach Driveway

Coast / Beach
Chirihama Beach Driveway is a tourist highway that extends for approximately 8 km along sandy beach from Imahama, Hodatsushimizu-cho, Hakui District, in Ishikawa Prefecture to Chirihama Town. The sand has been compacted so hard by the action of the waves that it is as hard as a surfaced road, making it possible for cars and buses to drive along the beach; it is the only beach driveway of its kind in Japan. In summer, many tourists visit the area to relax at the beach or go shellfish-gathering. In TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travelers’ Choice Awards for the Best Beaches in the World, Chirihama Beach ranked number one within Japan.
