Tokashiku beach is a beautiful white sand beach on the island of Tokashiki, one of the Kerama Islands about 32 km (20 miles) west of Okinawa island. The crystal clear waters off the beach here are regarded as one of the best places to spot sea turtles, which along with many species of tropical fish inhabit the bay here.
Besides the turtles, the snorkelling off Tokashiku beach isn’t the greatest in Okinawa. The reefs close to shore are somewhat damaged and you need to go out a fair way before things improve. That said, this is a good beach for swimming being relatively sheltered.
Tokashiku is a little quieter than nearby Aharen as it is less accessible. This means it might not be as good for families but is perfect for those wanting to relax and soak up the sun and tropical scenery.
