We were on the beach the last evening of the sea turtle season (hoping to possibly see a late comer before the beaches close down for actual tours) but while we saw no turtles, we did have some beautiful vistas. It was so relaxing and...More

If you're remotely interested in sea turtles this is the place you can't miss. We stayed there for three nights at Marine Blue Yakushima Hotel - which was the greatest hotel! When the sea is calm, the beach is great for swimming - when it's...More

A very beautiful beach where sea turtles will come at night to nest and hatch. During the daytime it is very very hot and sunny and the water so crystal blue.

This was a nice beach but there really isn't much to see, just average. You will probably notice a shrine in a cave which was pretty cool.

I visited the beach with my guide (from Yakushima Experience). In winter there is not much to see here, but we enjoyed a nice walk in the rain along the sandy beach. In summer, this is the best place to watch sea turtles lay eggs!

It was September, so there were no sea turtles. The water was so clear, so I...More

Gorgeous beach. In May you will be able to watch sea-turtles ! They come here to deliver their eggs at night (starts at 8pm until late in the night)
