Sunset beach is situated next to the Mihama American Village, a shopping centre and entertainment complex about 40 minutes north of Naha. This artificial beach has a fairly urban backdrop including the high-rise Beach Tower Okinawa hotel. Perhaps the most notable feature though is the giant ferris wheel that looms over the American Village.
There are plenty of facilities at the beach and the water is shallow with lifeguards on duty, all of which makes this an ideal family beach. In fact it is popular with both locals and American services families from the nearby air base.
As the name suggests, the west facing Sunset Beach is a great place to watch the sun setting over the East China Sea.
