1. Yumigahama Beach

This is a nice beach with a relatively white sandy coastline, shaped in a 1 km arch. It is a 20-30 minute drive from Shimoda City. We went over Independence Day Weekend and the beach was almost empty, although this could have been due to the inclement weather in Tokyo at the time.


2. Yonaha Maehama Beach

Yonaha Maehama Beach

This is a resort beach that represents an isolated island of Okinawa, Miyako Island, and is a place which a considerable number of tourists from Japan and abroad visit. However, the beach is little crowded owing to 7 m length of the coastline despite its name recognition. That’s attractive. You might be able to feel like being in a private beach in the early morning and in the off season if you are lucky.

5. Kondoi Beach

Kondoi Beach
Kondoi beach is on a small island called Taketomijima, which located around 6km away from the west of Ishigakijima. Kondoi beach preserves the pristine beauty of Okinawa; the waters are transparent clear, making the beach a miracle of nature. Emerald green water shining between snow-white sand and cobalt blue sky. The contrast between these bright colors is really a miracle. You can go swimming during the high tide and it is safe even for children. In low tides, the beach is quite shallow but the water never recedes completely.

6. Kisami Ohama Beach

Kisami Ohama Beach

Kisami-Ohama Beach near Shimoda is definitely my favorite beach in the area, and thanks to a direct train from Tokyo it makes it a fantastic weekend getaway. The waters are crystal clear, the sand is white and the beach has a very natural setting—no large road or big hotel spoil the view.

7. Tatadohama Beach

Tatadohama Beach
Even if you were prepared for the black volcanic sand, you most likely didn’t enjoy having to dodge bits and pieces of garbage while swimming. And if you visited in the run-up to the July/August summer season, you probably didn’t enjoy being serenaded by the sounds of construction rather than the gentle lapping of waves.

8. Sukuji Bathing Beach

Sukuji Bathing Beach
Sukuji beach, located on the north west coast of Ishigaki, and not far from Kabira Bay, is a lovely spot which should be on any beach fan’s checklist. it is set in a bay surrounded by a mountainous landscape, and on a clear day the lighthouse at Uganzaki is clearly visible in the distance. The thing that distinguishes Sukuji from other beaches on the island is the depth of the water, which is very shallow.
