Beppu Kaihin Suna-yu (Beach Sand Bath)

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath
A sand bath area located in a section of Shoningahama Beach, which derives its name from Ippen Shonin (holy priest). First opened in 1986, this unusual sand hot spring has a movable roof to allow the facility to be enjoyed even in the rain, as well as a rest area, both installed in 2002. All necessary bathing items are also available (some must be purchased), making it easy to come without the need to prepare. Note that operating hours are different between the March to November period and the December to February period. A 10-minute drive by car from JR Beppu Station.
