Mizushima Island, which is famous for its pristine sea-water and white sand, is a small, uninhabited island located near the tip of the Tsuruga Peninsula. During the period when the water is suitable for sea-bathing (from early July to late August), there are ferries operating every day that take visitors out to the Island. As Mizushima Island is surrounded by sandbanks and reefs, it is recommended that visitors wear appropriate footwear, such as beach shoes.

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
