If you want to go where all the tourists are bussed in this is it. It has soft sand, showers-lockers you pay for and bathrooms. You can pretty much rent or buy anything you need.

The Yellow Submarine based at Araren Beach was a excellent tour and we saw sea turtles ad a multitude of fish, seaweed beds and coral.

Turquoise coloured water and a white sandy beach. Aharen. A beautiful beach on a Tokashiki Jima. If you come out of season you might have it all to your self. What could possible be better? It is so quiet and clean. Fantastic place.

Aharen Beach is the place to go. Uncluttered. Minimal crowd. Great lookout area on the far right side of the beach. Worth the day spent sunning and swimming.

After Zamami island beach I was disappointed because of too much dead coral. Yet there are some live corals that you can see fish. The bus takes you all the way to the beach non stop and at the bus terminus, shower/restroom facilities are available....More

A beautiful beach with crystal clear waters that isn’t as crowded as I’d feared it’ll be. There are many corals and fishes here, though I wouldn’t say it’s spectacular and colourful.. having witnessed real vibrancy way before the unfortunate global bleaching of the world’s corals...More

Water is very clear and the beach is white and clean (some dead coral but not too much). Very exotic feel with still and clear water full of underwater life and great view of green mountains around. Sunbeds on the beach (prices are ok) but...More

This places is a great little get away. It's a small island and a very slow pace-of-life but it's one of my favorite spots I want to go if I'm in the mood to be a beach bum. The water visibility is incredible, some great...More

This beach is beautiful and a must visit if you go to tokashiki! It is such a quiet beach and can be reached easily by a taxi bus (only 300 yen per person). You can buy a "bracelet" for 500 yen which gives you access...More

We went to Aharen Beach in mid April. The weather was a bit overcast and breezy, but it wasn't cold. The water is cold when you first get in, but you get used to it quickly. We rented snorkel masks for 500 yen each and...More

I guess you can't, but there is a camp site next to the beach. It's a public one but you need to pay and less facilities like cold shower. But one special, if you stay there your tent will be a closer accommodation than any... More
