An extraordinary beach that only appears at low tide

Yoronjima, an island located at the southern tip of Kagoshima Prefecture, features numerous beautiful beaches. One of these is Yurigahama, a sandbar that stretches out around 1.5 km offshore of Oganeku-kaigan on the island's east coast, only appearing at low tide. The emerald green sea and pure white sand give the beach a magical appearance and beauty that puts even overseas resorts to shame. The location and time that Yurigahama appears changes depending on the day, so you should gather this information before you go.


To the glass boat boarding point, about 7km from Yoron Airport, about 20 minutes by car.
