“nice sandy beach in overdeveloped area”
Review of Shirahama Beach

Well the beach itself is gorgeous with perfect white sand. But it's hard to think of it as relaxing, as it's an overdeveloped strip with high rises all along the beach. Still, it's the best beach you'll find in the Wakayama prefecture.

I was here midday in May, so there were no crowds and the weather was cool. The beach is long beautiful landscaped. The water is crystal clear, the sand a brilliant white. There are many cute little shops to dine in, catch some coffee or beer, or buy souvenirs. Wonderful

If you are in Japan but you don't have the chance to go to Okinawa and the islands, Shirahama and its beach can be a good solution. The beach has a very white sand and all possible services, including hot baths practically on the beach.
During the low season many shops and attractions are closed, but there is also very few tourists on the beach, which it means you can enjoy it better.

In early spring, the beach was almost deserted, which was great for a long, blissful walk. The water was clear but cold and the white and powdery sand offered comfort to tired feet. One can just lie down on the sand and dream. Beautiful view all around.

I've been there in early June this year.
Such a beautiful place with prefect white sand and clear water. Nice sunset view also.
Sad that it was a bit too cold to swim. Wanna be there once again for swimming.
