Irogahama Beach色ヶ浜(色ヶ浜海水浴場)

Coast / Beach

This beach on Mizushima Island, a small uninhabited island off the tip of the Tsuruga Peninsula, is popular for the high clarity of its waters and for its white sands. During the swimming season which lasts from July 8 to August 31, visitors can reach the island via ferry. Called an ocean paradise by some, this island floating in the deep blue Tsuruga Bay is popular with families and couples. We recommend wearing water shoes or some other form of footwear to avoid cutting your feet on the rocks.

Fukui Main Areas

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.
