Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kansai / Wakayama Prefecture / Nishimuro-gun / Shirahama-cho / Shirarahama Beach
With snow-white sands imported from Australia and two of the oldest hot springs in Japan, Shirarahama Beach remains a major attraction in a popular seaside resort. The town began importing sand from Australia in 1989, as the area's coastline began to erode. Today, you can take a stroll along 640 m (2,099 ft) of sweeping soft sand, stopping at two hot springs. The beach can get very busy, so arrive early to get a good spot. Add Shirarahama Beach and other attractions to your Shirahama-cho trip itinerary using our Shirahama-cho road trip planner .
Shirarahama Beach Reviews
白濱必去景點之一，雖然不幸地剛好錯過前一天的堆沙雕大賽，但幸好仍遺下一個個的大沙堆，可以站上去拍照，欣賞景色。 more »White one must go to one of the scenery, unfortunately good than the previous day's pile of sand carving, but fortunately still a large pile of sand, you can stand up to take pictures, enjoy the view.
三段壁、千畳敷という白浜の観光スポットを巡って次に訪れたのが、白良浜海水浴場です。白浜の中心部に当たるんでしょうか。ホテルや食事処、お土産屋さんなどが建物が密集している町があり、道路を挟んだ海側がビーチなんです。 白良浜海水浴場は、数百ｍの弧を描いて続いている白砂の海岸でした。さらさらの白い砂のビーチの後ろ側にはヤシの木が点在していて、まるで南の島のリゾートみたいでした。 more »The next place I visited shirahama's tourist attractions, three-stage wall and sentatamshiki, was Shirarahama Beach. Will it hit the center of Shirahama? There is a town where the building is crowded with hotels, restaurants, souvenir shops, etc., and the sea side across the road is a beach. Shirarahama Beach was a white sand coast that continued with an arc of several hundred meters. There were palm trees scattered behind the white sand beach, and it was like a resort on a southern island.
Absolutely gorgeous beach. The sand is imported from Australia and doesn’t feel coarse at all. I visited during the winter so there was no possibility of going into the ocean water. However, the beach is very clean and the water is clear as well! This a must visit if you’re in the area.
Had a great time here. It was really nice to see a beach with lifeguards and garbage cans (I go to beaches all over Japan and it's a first). Really had that vacation feel to the place and offered up a lot to do even if the beach isn't your thing. Pretty good food nearby and decent snorkeling as well. Can't wait to go back.
