Beach · Hidden Gem · Outdoor Activity
Snorkel and swim at Isso Beach, which attracts visitors with its fine white sand, a rocky shoreline, and rich coral reefs. Be sure to stay within a roped-off swimming area to avoid the strong currents. In the summer, the beach features all the necessary amenities, including showers, restrooms, changing rooms, as well as food stalls, a cafe, and vendors selling snorkeling equipment. However, during the low season the beach is completely deserted and very windy. Nearby attractions include a cave shrine and a lighthouse.
