Okinawa’s Beaches Clean, Ready for New Season

Date Posted: 2004-03-19

Summer is here. Close enough, anyway, for beach and swim enthusiasts to break out the suntan lotions, pick up some new sunglasses, slip into the bikini or swim togs, and make for the water. The southernmost Yaeyama Islands kick the season off this weekend. Saturday morning Yaeyama beach opens, and Taketomi, a small island off Ishigaki, opens Sunday morning. Those islands are 300 miles from Naha.

Zampa Beach opens April 4th, offering a free banana boat, glass bottom boat rides and wind surfing tryouts. The following week, April 10th, Tropical Beach in Ginowan launches the summer season in conjunction with its Kaien Festival in the adjacent Kaihin Park by the Convention Center. Plan for the evening, when a large fireworks display will be fired off. Sunset Beach in Mihama opens April 23rd, and features a new spa.
