Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Kagoshima Prefecture / Kumage-gun / Yakushima-cho / Isso Beach
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.

If you go to the rocks outside the beach area, I'm told there's good snorkelling for tropical fish! Tons of parking space! You can swim at your own risk after hours.
