You really should go to the northerly tip of Okinawa if you have time. It’s a rather impressive site with several memorials, a café (where I first encountered plum-sized mangoes - delicious!) and quite impressive cliffs and surf views. We even spotted a turtle on...More

It’s worth an effort and time to visit far north of Okinawa island, there’s quite a nice vistas from a few platforms. There’s some basic foods available and fairly big park lot.

We loved our trip to Cape Hedo. Beautiful landscape, lovely rock formations, and neat attractions in the area that all made it worth the drive. There are hiking trails nearby that have excellent rock formations. There is also a huge bird-shaped (you heard me) observatory...More

We drove from Naha Airport all the way here for 2 hours just to see this place, it is absolutely beautiful. take the time to walk around and soak in the scenery. I have never seen such pretty turquoise water with blue skies.

Cape Hedo concessions have been renovated since my last trip there. However the views over the cliffs are spectacular and the trails around the site are well maintained.

Cape Hedo itself us very unsafe. Just south and east there appeared to be a beach. But we did not go there. For shells we go to sea Glass Beach II (south of sea glass beach which is tricky to get to). A little farther... More
