Takahama Beach (高浜海水浴場)
Located close to Takahama-Kaisuiyokujo-mae bus stop. This beach is located a short distance south along National Route 384 traveling from the Gyoran Kannon Observation Deck. This white sand beach is known nationwide and is considered the most beautiful in Japan. With no buildings nearby, visitors can enjoy the beautiful, vivid contrast created by the green of the surrounding mountains and the blue of the East China Sea; Gunkanjima (Hashima Island) is also visible from here. The highly renowned beach has been selected for inclusion in a new list of the 100 New Japan Travel Destinations, the Japan's 100 Best Beaches list, a list of Japan's 100 Best Roads, and a list of the 88 Best Swimming Beaches in Japan. During swimming season, the beach bustles with visitors. The waves here are relatively mild, making this a great destination for families with children as well.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
