Nagata Inakahama, Yakushima-cho

4.1
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Kumage-gun
Take in the unspoiled beauty of the white sand beach at Nagata Inakahama, a quiet stretch of coast with clear waters and picturesque views. Go for a walk or swim, snap some photos, and relax on the sand. One of the main highlights here happens between May and August: at night, you can witness the rare loggerhead turtle coming ashore to lay its eggs. In one of nature's most interesting life cycles, around 500 turtles visit here each year, the same beach they were born on 10 to 20 years prior.

  • Nagata Inahama, which seems to be the best sea turtle spawning site in Japan, was a very beautiful beach and sea. It is very quiet. I stopped by when I was about a lap in Yakushima in my rental car. In a word, it was a beautiful and quiet area. I feel like an environment suitable for the spawning ground of sea turtles. It was a good feeling. By the way, this area is also registered in the Ramsar Convention for the purpose of protecting and preserving the ecosystem of wetlands that make waterfowl the pinnacle of the food chain. I would recommend.
