A cresent-shaped white-sand beach with rocky projections and small harbors at both ends. Surfing is beach break with some action along the harbor walls. Beach is identified in sections, from the north Iwawada; river-mouth, chuo (center); cliffs; Hama (portside). Commonly small to medium waves, occasionally big pumpers. Popular in summer as a sunbathing beach and party-town. Nearby parking, short-walk-up access, restaurants and minshuku-hotels make this a good option along with Ohara and Hebara nearby north and south, respectively. Often good nice small surf in winter without big crowds.
