Last time we were in Shimoda, we went out of our way to go to Tatadohama beach. We paid 1,000¥ for parking there and only stayed an hour (we had a baby).

Parking Limited So Get Here Early. Bring drinks and food as restaurants can run out or be expensive. Really calm beach and less crowded than other Shimoda beaches.

No convenience stores, but a small venders which provide warm showers, cold beer, warm meals are opened during summer vacation. We also can rent umbrellas, floats,... More

Nice sandy beach and crystal clear water. Nice wawes and the beach is popular for surfing. Toilets and restaurants close to the beach and beach patrol. One can rest beach chairs and umbrellas. Easy access by bus from Shimoda and it is a 5 minutes walk from the bus stop to the beach.
