  • Emerald beach walks very clean. There are permanent ‘parasol’ type of seating which provides shade from the sun and some seating area for one to rest when out of water. There are around 4 big floats.....  more »

  • People who like calm and quite beach with magnificent color should definitely visit this place. The color of the water here is real emerald. Though the beach boundary is enough even for the swimmers, its a very kids friendly beach. A lot of parents came with their below 1 year kid for swimming training. Also a good point about this place is, in this expensive okinawa all the showers are free of cost!
  • Don't follow Google Maps route there, you should go thru the Churaumi Aquarium (you don't need to enter the Aquarium to access the beach, but you cross just around it, as if you're gonna enter the Aquarium). There is a beach house with showers (free) and lockers (¥100), you can rent beach umbrellas and stuff if you want. The beach is calm and relaxing, I was glad it was not crowded now, cause it seems kinda small if it gets crowded. The landscape is amazing, great spot to take beautiful photos.
