Nirai Beach

Reviewed By wife_of_fisherman - Taipei, Taiwan

This is a very nice beach and we stayed in the hotel directly next to it. Since it was quite hot during our stay, there were not so many people at the beach. It felt very safe with a life guard in charge during the day. It was beautiful with clean beach and clear water. The only thing we did not like is the fact that the actual water area is very small. You are not allowed to go in deeper and actually swim as you are able to stand everywhere in the marked area.

Zakimi Castle Ruins

Reviewed By travelsteph59 - Denver, Colorado

A little out of the way for me but I liked this castle a lot. There were almost no other people there so it was nice to explore in peace and quiet.

Cape Zampa

Reviewed By Hamburgguy47 - Hamburg, Germany

A nice place on the rugged coast of central Okinawa with a lighthouse that is well worth the climb up its narrow spiral staircase - great views from the top.

Murasakimura

Reviewed By Goodtimes1104 - Okayama, Japan

Our visit to MurasakiMura was during the evening to witness the beautiful lit lanterns. I cannot compare the experience to one during the day as we have not visited during the day; however, the evening visit during this time of year was well worth it. Our visit was with friends and all of our kids ranging from 8-14 years old. Needless to say, we all had fun. The lanterns are lit from 6-10pm from December 1st - February 21st.
Lanterns are lit throughout the park making for lots of photographic memories. Towards the back they have a huge lantern wall where one can find food stalls, snacks, and games for the kids to play. They also have a virtual movie they play throughout the night which is more of a mini light show with no story line. You will also find painting activities and shisa dog souvenirs. There are plenty of rest stops for one to take in the views. Highly recommended.

Zanpa Beach

We went there in the evening. It's a great place to relax and to watch the sunset. It was quiet and relaxing. The water was very clear... We didn't swim tho. We only walked along the beach.

Toguchi Beach

Reviewed By Eliza E - Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States

Toguchi beach is one of my all time favorite Beaches. It is a great spot to do yoga - there is a big grassy area perfect for classes or individual practice. The visibility for snorkeling can be somewhat limited, but the coral is very healthy, especially as you get farther away from the shoreline. There is a bathroom with running water right at the parking lot, plus a playground, 5 picnic tables overlooking the water with 3 covered areas. It's a great spot for families or a romantic date to watch the sunset, but don't bring your dog because they are not allowed. Toguchi love!

Reviewed By travelmomVancouver - Vancouver

I would say this is a tourist trap but others may like it. The entrance fee is expansive. If you enjoy nature, then avoid those tourist oriented privately operated attraction.

Yomitan Museum of History and Folklore

Reviewed By Okinawaphile - Great Falls, Montana

This year's visit to Okinawa is intended to focus on the Yomitan Peninsula.
The museum is one of those 'Must Do' agenda items and was not disappointing. The museum is organized in sections relating to textiles, typical old Okinawan-style private homes, many archaeological artifacts, fishing and farming implement, and war memorabilia.
Photography and videography is not allowed.
An all-Japanese language research library is included in the facility.
I was hoping to find an English-language publication re Okinawan folklore but there was none to be found.
Of course, the main attraction is the ruins of Zakimi Castle. Beautiful stone architecture and views from the walls.
For a mere 200 yen it is a great stop-off. Depending upon your plans a visitor can easily make this stop only one of many sights to be seen in a day; two to three hours tops unless you plan to picnic, etc. on the castle grounds.
Easy to find with excellent signage from Rte 58 and Rte 12. Just look for the large white overhead signs with blue lettering - including English-language on signs.

Hakujo Park

Reviewed By kerokeromania - 札幌

沖縄戦の米軍上陸地点とされた渡具知ビーチのすぐ近くにある公園で、駐車場も整備されていて小さな売店もあります。公園そのものの見所は正直少ないですが、景勝地が近いので、ドライブがてら休憩に立ち寄るのに良い所だと思います。

This was a great find. See weaving in progress, learn the meaning of different weaving patterns, and have the opportunity to purchase some one of a kind handcrafted souvenir. A must see when visiting Okinawa
