From the northeast side of Katsuren Peninsula, driving through an undersea tunnel and two bridges takes you to this small island. This is one of the best driving course in Okinawa, and the island is entered through a huge red bridge, leading you to stunning scenery of sugarcane fields and pristine beaches.
There are two beaches, Otomari and Ikei, both of which require a usage fee but less crowded to relaxingly indulge in white sand and crystal-clear waters. Both beaches face the bay and are less windy year-round, drawing campers, fishers and marine sport activists. The starry sky at night is must-see and turtles nestle and lay eggs here.

Beautiful beach with rather coarse sand. The waves were too rough for us to swim but the water was beautiful. Rather steep pricing though... Beware!

Great beach! But if you go out there bring food and drinks not alot of options. Very beautiful and peaceful there.

Way too busy! Would not recommend. Only for tourists staying at the resorts nearby. All amenities including parking here cost money, not a free beach to enjoy

Very busy when we went. Parking is limited and the drive in gets very close to one lane traffic at the end. The beach was great though. Just get there early enough to beat the rush and you should be fine!

500 yen per person. Nice beach with a net to keep wildlife out. They clean the beach too.
