Water was greenish and was a bit shallow, which was great for swimming with kids. We went there during the summer festival, so there were lots of food stalls right next to the beach. The lockers and showers are quite large. Parking in garage close to the...More

Recommended to go by a colleague of mine who grew up in Okinawa. This is by far the best beach on the main island! The sand is a little course as you'd expect but it is white and the water is so clear! You can...More
