Nirai Beach

Partake in watersports and snorkeling at this clean and safe beach. Enjoy views of the boulders and mossy hills surrounding it.

Nirai Beach is a stunning stretch of white sand with shallow, clear water that is ideal for snorkeling. It is 1,300 feet (400 meters) long and has a netted swimming area, making it safe for families. Capture photos of the intriguing rock formations rising above the water just off the shore.

Rent a deck chair and umbrella for a comfortable afternoon on this picturesque beach. The site has public amenities, including restrooms and vending machines. Admire the blue and green hues of the water that generate an exotic ambiance.

Appreciate the hot summers as you relax in the sun and enhance your tan. Cool off with a dip in the shallow water with your kids and play ball games. Spot crabs and comb the beach for treasures, such as shells. Climb to higher ground and take photos of the picturesque beach, which is flanked by large boulders and mossy hills.

Rent snorkeling gear from the hotel on the beach or from a tour operator. Make sure to wear a life jacket as you inspect the colorful marine creatures here. Surfboards, water tricycles and other fun equipment are available to rent. Watch the setting sun turn the sky crimson over the water.

Stay at one of the resorts adorning this scenic bay. Dine in the fast-food area to regain your strength following energetic watersports.

Note that swimming hours are from morning until early evening year-round. Admission to the beach, which has lifeguards on duty, is free. Store your valuables in the coin-operated lockers.

Nirai Beach is in the outskirts of Yomitan Village on the western coast of Okinawa Island. Drive here from the city of Okinawa in about 30 minutes and leave your car in the free parking lot. Visit nearby attractions, such as the Zakimi Castle, Cape Maeda and Zanpa Golf Course.
