It's connected to hotel Nikko alivila but you can go into the beach just as visitor. It's well managed and clean. I saw some hermit crabs and if you look carefully enough you can find some tropical fishes in the sea. The beach was beautiful.

It can be very very crowded because of the location behind the hotel. There would happen to encounter some rude visitors who have no respect to the others and the nature.

Loved the view, it does not tire after 5 days. Walking the coastline & explore this little bay is a great retreat. Worth the travels

I was unable to wade due to a box jellyfish flooding. I walked in the sand and on the rocks. There are vending machines and public restrooms available.

Been to several beaches in main island Okinawa and this one definitely ranks on top especially since we are staying at the resort Alivila right next to it. Beach is shallow and great for snorkeling and water sports.

No it's open to the public as well. No admission fee but you'll pay 3100 yen for an umbrella or chair which is free for hotel guests.
