#2 of 6 in Beaches in Kumage-gun
Snorkel and swim at Isso Beach, which attracts visitors with its fine white sand, a rocky shoreline, and rich coral reefs. Be sure to stay within a roped-off swimming area to avoid the strong currents. In the summer, the beach features all the necessary amenities, including showers, restrooms, changing rooms, as well as food stalls, a cafe, and vendors selling snorkeling equipment. However, during the low season the beach is completely deserted and very windy. Nearby attractions include a cave shrine and a lighthouse.

  • If you are aiming to go around Yakushima, please stop by Marukatsu Fisheries Co., Ltd., a long-established sababushi factory founded in the Edo period. Along the road along ichiminato in Yakushima! When I stopped by, i was happy to visit the factory and taught me the manufacturing process carefully! Old-fashioned bamboo seiro to line up the mackerel This is the only way to use or smoke with hardwood. It is delicious when I taste it. The sababushi in front of the left hand is delicious when i relax and eat it with mayonnaise and soy sauce. It is said that the mackerel cutting clause of the tick is used for the dashi of the udon shop in Kanto. Of course you can also buy it at the factory!

  • I went to May 2018. It was an early time to swim, so I stopped by the drive. It is a beach on the way to Nagata Kohama from Miyoura. There is a large parking lot, so you can have a toilet and shower. There are also stores in the summer. The beach is full of facilities.

  • The beach is beautiful, but we didn't find any fish while snorkling.
  • I wish I knew this place closed at 6 PM. They serve hot food like curry rice and taco taking from a truck and even have beach good to rent and life guards, change rooms. If you go to the rocks outside the beach area, I'm told there's good snorkelling for tropical fish! Tons of parking space! You can swim at your own risk after hours.
