Yonaha-maehama Beach

Okinawa, Kyushu

This is a resort beach that represents an isolated island of Okinawa, Miyako Island, and is a place which a considerable number of tourists from Japan and abroad visit. However, the beach is little crowded owing to 7 m length of the coastline despite its name recognition. That’s attractive. You might be able to feel like being in a private beach in the early morning and in the off season if you are lucky.

The landscape is overwhelmingly beautiful, and a combination of white sand beach and emerald green is described as the best scenery in the orient. In particular, evening view peculiar to a coast facing west is the best situation which many photographers visit to take pictures. Marin sports, such as snorkeling, yacht, boat, and jet-ski, are also popular. There are rental shops in the surrounding area, and you can enjoy some marine sports with your hands empty. In addition, there are stalls, restaurants, showers, and changing rooms. An environment for spending the entire day at the beach has been established.

As Miyako Island is a tropical island, you can enjoy sea bathing all year. However, stay in April requires attention. An iron man race is held around that time every year, and over 1,000 athletes flood into this beach. Accommodation facilities in the surrounding area are almost filled up, and the beach is also crowded. So, make sure to set a travel schedule after checking on relevant information.
