Sesoko Beach


This is an 800-meter-long natural sand beach with shallow, crystal-clear water, located on Sesoko Island -- a small island connected to Okinawa's main island by a bridge. About 500 meters offshore lies an expanse of beautiful coral reef, which is accessible on foot at low tide. Ie and Minna islands are clearly visible from the beach. Although this is the most popular beach on Sesoko Island among tourists and families with children, there are many other pristine natural beaches around the island, and they are recommended for those looking to immerse themselves in a more magnificent natural setting.
