Shirahama Beach

Alongside Shimoda and its many gorgeous beaches, Shirahama Beach comes in a close second. Famous among surfers this 800m long beach is EXTREMELY popular in summer, and we can’t stress the word popular enough here! During July and August you may have a hard time finding a decent spot to lay down your summer gear, even at 7 in the morning!

Besides the hotel nearby, the place does not offer much and we would strongly advise bringing a packed lunch if you want to eat something good while sunbathing.

Finally, Shirahama Beach is also popular for its nearby shrine and red torii sitting proudly on a huge rock located at the far left end of the beach. All year long this torii offers a unique view that can rarely be seen in Japan so we strongly advise bringing along your camera for some stunning shots!
