Hatenohama is a narrow 7-kilometer long beach along the east side of Kume Island. The beach is surrounded by pure-white sand and an emerald green ocean as far as the eye can see. The contrast between the white and azure is said to be the most beautiful in the East, and the beach is most suitably called a tropical paradise. It’s only 20 minutes by tour ship from “Tomari Fisharena”, Kume Island’s port. During the beach season, parasols and beach mats are available for rent. When you’re here, you’ll forget about time.
