Very windy scenic spot. No shaded area (except the lobby and the staircase up the lighthouse) so do remember to put on sun block before coming here. Need to pay 200 yen to go up to the top of the lighthouse. But we were there...More

Pretty view of the vast sea. Many other attractions to visit around this area. Good to come by to relax and take in the view before moving on to other places.

On the day we had some spare time so decided to check out the lighthouse. However it was very windy so we didn't walk up to the lighthouse itself. View was great though. There's a Blue Seal Ice Cream car there as well.

Out of the three famous capes in the vicinity, this one is probably the losing one even though it is the only one with a lighthouse. Parking is however free and would be a nice place to break while driving to another attraction.

Great views of all of Okinawa. Definitely go to top of lighthouse... It is worth the 99 stairs to climb.

Possible but it's quite troublesome to change buses and finding the right stops to stop. If you are travelling with 2 to 4 pax, would be much convenient to rent a car.
