We strolled along the beach and watched how the waves rolled. There is an aquarium nearby which is popular for families with kids. We crossed a small bridge which led us up to the top of hill. We really appreciated its natural beauty. Highly recommend.

Spend a few hours here if you like to take photos. Try to find some famous 5 color stones at the beach.

The first thing is that this beach has a fees entry. The beach is nice and well maintained its a pleasure to have a relaxing walk or just sit on the beach. This is a non swimming beach due to the strong flow that make very dangerous to swim. It is a good place to visit but dont know if... More

After my tour at Sakamoto Ryoma museum, I went to Katsurahama beach to enjoy the rest of the day. It's really a beautiful place! There's a long promenade that will take you to a small shrine closed to the ocean. There's also an aquarium if you come with kids.

It is a must for visitors to Kochi. The beach, although it is not allowed to swim here, is marvelous! Can you imagine that Ryoma (a hero of Kochi and a great contributor for the Meiji Restoration) once stood here!

I've been there a couple of times over the years, in summer and winter. The walk through the pines looking at the opposite side of the beach with the view on the little shrine up on a little rocky cape is lovely. We can make very good pictures. Then walk along the beach and go up to the shrine looking... More

I went there in Spring. The weather was nice. We ate at the beach our bento box, enjoyed a sun bath and the view. The beach and the sand are very clean. The children enjoyed the beach and playing with the peebles. Only one sad thing is, "no swimming allow" due to strong currents.

I grew up near the sea and always find it relaxing to be back by the sounds and smells of my childhood. With beautifully clear water and a spotless beach, Katsurahama is lovely and even on a Sunday during a holiday weekend it wasn't too busy. With high vantage points and areas of historic interest there's a reasonable amount to... More

Quite short to visit but offer a nice break from visits in town. With the aquarium nearby, it makes a nice place to see with children.

From the Information Centre located just outside of JR Kochi Station we purchased a 1 day round trip bus ticket. On the route to the beach it makes numerous stops where you can get on/off at sightseeing destinations. We also got off to explore Chikurinji (temple) and the nearby gardens. The Beach is the final stop and was lots of... More
