Here is not for snorkeling but even small children can enjoy to play in the beach, sand play or watching sea creatures in super clean sea and beautiful white sand beach here.

Great beach and beautiful environment and park. It is just a pity you are not allowed to swim during this season

Really stunning beach, it's free so no need to pay entrance, only parking if you drive. They don't allow you to snorkel here, which is a bummer, but it's one of the one roped off beaches on the mainland Okinawa where it's roped off to...More

Sun, white beach, clear water are enough to spend some hours in this place. The place is free and there is a small cafeteria
