Adan Beach

Address:Sosu, Kunigami, Kunigami District, Okinawa Prefecture 905-1502

This amazing beach is located on the Northeast side of the main island inside an atoll. It is a quiet beach with little waves and various types of carol and tropical fish. If you are lucky you may also find clownfish inside the Sea Anemone. There are parkings, toilets and shower rooms, so there is only one advice from the expert, which is remember to bring your swimmers and snorkel gears!


Impressive rating No2

The Beach near Cafe Kurage

Address:Sosu, Kunigami, Kunigami District, Okinawa Prefecture 905-1502

5 minutes away from Adan beach towards Ada by car. Please be careful when you enter the beach from the side of the road  as it is not constructed properly and it seems easy to fall over. However, there are ropes tided by previous visitors and the ropes can be used as an aid to go down to the beach.
Because it is so hard to get to, therefore it has barely been disrupted and polluted. Recommended for people who just want to have some intimate spaces at the beach!
