Touring the Shoreline on an Excursion Boat
The coast boasts very clear water that is transparent to a depth of 25 m on a sunny day. You can see the beautiful Uradome Shore from the boat. A local guide on board will give you a tour in the Tottori dialect. There are various cruising options available. You can take a small boat that cruises right by uniquely shaped rocks or a luxurious large boat.
A Pathway along Uradome Shore
There is a pathway on the coast from Ajiro Port to Tajiri Port. You can stroll while enjoying the unique rocks and the cliffs closer. The pathway stretches about 3 km and takes about two and a half hours. It will be a relaxing walk, but be careful since the path goes up and down.
A Wide Range of Activities
A wide variety of marine activities are available on this shoreline. They provide canoeing where you go through caves on a transparent canoe, and sea kayaking where you row between rocks. You can also enjoy surfing and snorkeling in this beautiful clear water.
