Came here in early May whilst driving around the island. The beach wasn't really that special nor was it particularly busy, probably because it was an overcast day. Need to be careful with parking in the vicinity as some places charge crazy prices.

A nice beach by all accounts but nothing to go crazy about. There are nicer beaches around the island to go to.

A very basic beach, very little great about it, not sure why this is highly rated, even Hong Kong has better beaches, wouldn’t recommend staying on the main Okinawa island for beaches, should to a day trip to other islands for the beaches

If you are visiting Churaumi Aquarium and driving, you can consider stopping by Emerald beach which is less than 5 minuets drive away from the aquarium. Nothing much to do there except to enjoy the great view of the emerald waters and laze around. If...More

I love this beach for its natural beauty! It is accessible within the Ocean Expo Park. Enjoyed the scenery and it’s powder white sand. It gives a tranquil and peaceful feeling. I marvelled at God’s creation!

Nice safe beach and you can spend a lot of time there. If the weather is good, the sunset is really nice and that’ll be the best time of the hot day to visit the beach! We met typhoon here once, the beach was closed...More

The beach is located within the Ocean Expo park, and within 5 minutes walk from Hotel Orion Motobu which we stayed in. The beach is clean and has great views. However the sand has lots of broken coral and shells so not as powdery as...More

Nice small beach next to the Orion Hotel but almost nothing is allowed including leaving the beach.... We tried to go for a walk and were stopped from leaving the beach area. Apparently you are not allowed in to the non marked areas.
