Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, Hakui

#1 of 136 in Beaches in Chubu
Must see · Scenic Drive · Beach
Take a ride along Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, a sandy beach that acts as a seaside road for bikes, cars, and buses. Because the sand here has a smaller than average diameter, rainwater easily passes through into its deeper layers, allowing it to compact tightly together. This creates a surface suitable for automobiles, and the thrill of riding, driving, and touring right by the sea attracts locals and tourists alike. Stop off for some swimming, a little beachcombing, and some local specialities, including grilled clams cooked on beach barbecues.
