Emerald Beach - Japan

Emerald beach is located on the tip of the Motobu Peninsula in the north of Okinawa’s main island, Honto. The name comes from the beautiful greeny-turquoise colour of the clear waters here which are every bit as clean as they look. Emerald beach is actually part of the Ocean Expo Park which extends for 3km along the coast containing such things as a “native Okinawan village” and botanical garden. The park’s most notable attraction though is the famous Churaumi Aquarium, reputedly the best in Japan and the second largest in the world.
The beach here is divided into three sections each with its owns designated use; there is one beach for relaxing, one for taking in the scenery and a third for swimming and activities.Only in Japan!
