Beach Hack Tour (Kunigami Village)
Trip Report

 

10:30 am
Kaganji Beach

 

 

The first beach for our trip is Kaganji Beach, which is in the western coastal area immediately after entering Kunigami Village.

This is a 100% natural beach whose name comes from being next to the“beautiful expanse of mirror-like water.”

 

We were the only ones there when we went and had the entire place to ourselves.

Even when we tried searching for it using hashtags on Instagram, we only found very few posts. So we called this a secret beach!

→Okinawa Likes-san was also super excited about the transparent sea that reminded him of Okinawa’s remote islands♪
