Traveling to Okinawa makes you feel like you’ve been abroad and feels like a resort.
If you go to Okinawa, you want to go to the beach. Let’s take a look at the recommended beaches.
Recommended beaches on the main island of Okinawa
If you come to Okinawa, you have to go to the sea. It’s fun to enter the sea no matter how old you are.
If you’re staying at a hotel next to the beach, you don’t have to worry about it, but if you’re staying at a hotel in Naha, you’ll be wondering where to go.
In addition, we will introduce beaches recommended for those who do not know which beach is good for their first trip to Okinawa. It would be nice if you could imagine the distance from the beach from Naha city.
Beach going from Naha
Naha also has a beach, but it doesn’t feel like a resort, so if you’ve come to Okinawa, I’d like to go to a beach with a little more resort feel.
By the way, basically, if you are traveling in Okinawa, you should rent a car.
Toyosaki Seaside Park Toyosaki Chura SUN Beach is recommended for those who don’t want to spend too much time from Naha.
Next, if you want to drive from Naha in about an hour, there are Chatan Sunset Beach and Azama Sun Sun Beach. We recommend Nirai Beach and Zanpa Beach, which are a little further away.
If you can take about 2 hours, there are San Marina Beach, Manza Beach, Busena Beach and Kise Beach.
If you want to go around the Churaumi Aquarium and go to the beach, we recommend Kaiyohaku Park Emerald Beach and Kouri Beach.
There are other good beaches, but as a beach to go from Naha, I recommend the beach introduced this time whether you want to swim in the sea or in terms of distance.
Recommended beach for a day trip from Naha
Toyosaki Seaside Park Toyosaki Chura SUN Beach
Azama Sun Sun Beach
Chatan Sunset Beach
Sun Marina Beach
Busena Beach, Kise Beach
Seaside Park Emerald Beach
There are beaches that are close to each other, so if you are driving or sightseeing, you can visit multiple beaches a day.
Personally recommended beach 1. Emerald beach
If you personally go to the beach for sightseeing from Naha, take the highway to Churaumi Aquarium at once. If the road is free, it will arrive in about 2 hours. Then enjoy a swim at Emerald Beach.
If you still have time, you can go to Kouri Beach and enjoy another beach. If you have time, you can stop by the tourist spot or the roadside station on your way home.
Personally recommended beach 2. Nirai Beach
I want to go to a different beach the next day! If so, I also recommend the area around Nirai Beach. There is a Mega Don Quijote on the way from Naha, so if you don’t have a swimsuit, you can buy it there.
You can go to a supermarket nearby, but it’s a good idea to buy plenty of drinks and lunch boxes as well. The vending machines at Nirai Beach are a little expensive, so be sure to buy them in advance. You can use the shower and changing room for free, but for a hot shower, you need to buy a coin of 300 yen for 4 minutes.
If you use parasols or pay seats, it will cost more than 4 people, but we recommend using paid seats. The paid seat fee is around 6500 yen.
