Hello everyone reading Okinawa Holiday Hackers♪


Today I introduce great beach on Okinawa again!

So here is famous in Yomitan Village (central part of Okinawa Island in Okinawa prefecture) and spreading out on the Western side of outstanding scenic spot in Japan “Cape Zanpa”


Zanpa Beach



The entrance is like this♪

The landmark is a “Zanpa Beach” sign.



Hibiscus with vivid colors and marine blue color sea greet you♪

“True Okinawa” scenery is right in front of you (^^)



Hala trees at the shore is a trademark of Zanpa Beach♪




Natural beach surrounded by coral reefs is shallow, with highly transparent water and calm waves.



Reefs are also located in offing and when the tide is low they come to the surface and you can see angular forms. Also you can see small fishes that made this place their home♪


▼ Check the scene of Zanpa Beach in Instagram for your reference




On the way to the entrance of Zanpa Beach there are resort hotels, and I have an impression that the beach is often being used by people staying in the hotels. Here and there families and students that look like local people ^^*

Swimming area is not so large, but beach is very crowded by people♪



Reasons why people are gathering on Zanpa Beach. Reason ①


Abundance of variations of marine activities



It seems that there are people who arrived to Zanpa Beach with a purpose to do marine activities♪


And moreover, umichu is a guide on glass-bottom boat where you can see underwater scene!!!

Who is “umichu”? Umichu is a fisherman or a person related to sea!


You definitely should enjoy marine activities also when you arrive on Zanpa Beach.


Reasons why people are gathering on Zanpa Beach. Reason ②


\ Famous sunset spot /



At sunset time people suddenly appear out of nowhere.

In a few minutes before sun sets over the horizon, everybody starting from recently talking persons, amazed people keeping saying “Beautiful!” and “Great!” becomes silent and the beach turns into a mystical place.

Everyone is impressed by the view right in front of their eyes ^^
