Sandambeki Rock Cliff, Shirahama-cho

3.6
#5 of 10 in Parks in Shirahama-cho
Geologic Formation · Lookout
See the handiwork of the Pacific Ocean during an exploration of Sandambeki Rock Cliff, a coastal stretch featuring attractive and impressive rock formations. Take in the sight of the ocean battering the 50 m (164 ft) tall cliff, eroded into tiers that appear both rugged and ordered. Head down the elevator to explore a cave said to have been a secret hiding place for the Kumano-suigun navy during the late Heian period (794-1185 CE), and take the time to scrabble around on the rocks to the north of the cliff, snapping photos of the interesting formations. Make Sandambeki Rock Cliff a centerpiece of your Shirahama-cho vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Shirahama-cho journey planner.

  • Three very steep cliffs with a history of intrigue and pirates. Take a 36m lift down into sea caves to see a small but impressive shrine and learn about the local history and geological makeup of the area.
  • Must-go to the cave by elevator, ticket 1300 yen. You can see the power of wave downstairs.
