Car parking is across the road. No swimming allowed but lots of banana boat and glass bottom boat activities. White sand and gorgeous turquoise waters. So beautiful.

This is the best beach near Yomitan. The sand was clean and well tended. There is a roped area for swimming and a life guard, so a great place to bring kids.

This beach is very clean! The swim area is roped off and there are lifeguards on duty. There is a snack bar onsite, as well as clean bathrooms. Wear your water shoes as there is some coral in the water. Umbrellas and chairs cost yen,...More

We went there in the evening. It's a great place to relax and to watch the sunset. It was quiet and relaxing. The water was very clear... We didn't swim tho. We only walked along the beach.
