Uppama in the local dialect means big. As its name implies, this is a pristine, one-kilometer-long beach with shallow water displaying many different nuances of blue. Nestled in the beautiful natural surroundings of northern Okinawa, the beach is a famous spot for watching sea turtles laying eggs. From the beach, you can see Kouri Island just offshore.
