Beach · Outdoor Activity
Take a stroll along Katsura Hama, a picturesque stretch of sand lined with tall pine trees. A small shrine on top of a jutting rocky cliff offers scenic views of the crescent-shaped beach and the thunderous waves crashing against its shores. View the statue of Ryoma Sakamoto, a famous Kochi samurai, have a picnic, or visit the small museum and aquarium. Swimming is prohibited on the beach, due to the dangerously strong currents.
