White sand, blue sea, sunset, shadows of islands far away - everything you wish from a resort beach is here. You can enjoy many water sports such as diving, water skiing, jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking, riding glass-bottom boat or playing beach volleyball. There are also places to have light snacks.

Inside the park, there is a place called Ikoino Hiroba which has a large field with a lawn, barbecue equipment and sports field. The place is filled with locals and tourists relaxing. Here, you can also find the biggest statue of Shisa in Okinawa, a perfect spot for a picture.
Uganji, a spiritual spot
As you walk from the parking lot towards the lighthouse, you will see a small shrine. It is called Uganji where locals pray everyday. When you see people praying in the middle of a rocky field, it looks as if the time stands still here and travels at its own sweet pace.
Statue of Taiki, the god of business
When Ryukyu kingdom ruled the islands of Okinawa, Taiki was a forerunner among traders who officially traded with China in 1373. He traveled to China five times. This was a time when many people died at sea. Praising his business skill and global outlook, his statue was built in his hometown as a "god of business."
