Nice beach with good space for kids. Sand is a bit dark. Beach is kept clean and have life guards in season. Many people come for surfing near by. Many restaurants along side the main road.

Nice beach - a bit dirty compared to the rest of Japan. Lifeguard until 17:00 o’clock. Wave breakers makes it nice to swim at every time. There is a kids water fun park that looks really cool!

With the beach, waves, blue water crashing in the breakwater, sand, walkways...a perfect outing spot. Not much facilities for beach activities. You just sit back and relax.

Atami Sun Beach is arguably the main attraction in the immediate area around Atami Station, and for good reason. While man made, you can have a taste of what you would experience on a tropical island or perhaps the French Riviera. Despite the continuous crowds...More

Nice beach. The water is not so clean (plastic and plastic bags...) . The sand is OK. Restaurants are close-by.
