Hei-bama: A lovely little bay with interesting rock formations at both ends. Great walks. Safe swimming, white sand and warm water from June until October. Just thirty minutes from Tango-an along interesting roads.
Kotobikki-hama: Literally, “the beach that plays music.” The quality of the sand is such that it squeaks when you drag your feet on it. Also, watch the sunset from a natural hot water spa directly on the beach. Get in the hot water tub, get cooked, go jump in the cool sea 20 meters away, then start again. Thirty minutes from Hei-bama or from Tango-an.
