Great sand and very easy access. You have an active volcano view and sweet, water mountain stream on the northern end. We were in October and it was empty.

Really nice beach. Practically empty when we where there. Great swimming but du to waves sometimes and steep entrance from the beach makes it less suitable for small children. Nice snorkeling 150 meters to the right of Hotel Marine Blue. Nor corals but lots of...More

We drove to see the sunset but both days, it wasn’t much of a sunset. There was nobody on the beach except the two of us. Waves are hitting the rocks that line the coast so I Guess it isn’t suitable for Swimming.

If you're remotely interested in sea turtles this is the place you can't miss. We stayed there for three nights at Marine Blue Yakushima Hotel - which was the greatest hotel! When the sea is calm, the beach is great for swimming - when it's...More

A very beautiful beach where sea turtles will come at night to nest and hatch. During the daytime it is very very hot and sunny and the water so crystal blue.

This was a nice beach but there really isn't much to see, just average. You will probably notice a shrine in a cave which was pretty cool.

Unfortunately the weather was cloudy when we arrived at the beach--but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves. We were able to grab some amazing photos. There was no one around at the time and we were able to relax in peace after an exhausting...More

I visited the beach with my guide (from Yakushima Experience). In winter there is not much to see here, but we enjoyed a nice walk in the rain along the sandy beach. In summer, this is the best place to watch sea turtles lay eggs!
