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.

海灘很漂亮但對我和小小孩來說這個海灘的沙石有點多&大、走起來腳底板很痛。 旅遊旺季造訪,更衣室、沐浴間稍嫌不足~ If you drive there, park at P9 park lot which is closest.

Most beaches are pretty bare bones as far as amenities, but this place has everything and it's nice, including music being piped in. At low tide it's mostly sea sludge but still nice.

It is really one of the best beaches in Okinawa. But water temperature in end April - early May is not so warm (about 23 C).

Here is not for snorkeling but even small children can enjoy to play in the beach, sand play or watching sea creatures in super clean sea and beautiful white sand beach here.
