A hidden gem of luxury


c) Okuma Private Beach and Resort1

This hidden gem spots you don’t want to miss!


There is a beautiful private beach and resort in Okuma Beach (Kunigami-son), nestled between the ancestral Yanbaru forest (UNESCO World Natural Heritage) and the East China Sea. It is easily accessible by self-drive or via a free shuttle bus in 2.5 hours from Naha airport.

This area is a unique retreat, offers the opportunity to spend quality time with your loved ones, release your spirit and surrender to the magnificence of nature. Take a walk at the long sandy private beach, sleep in the luxurious and elegant palm cottage, relax on the boat while watching the sunset, or swim along with the fishes in the sea.

At this luxury resort, there is plenty to keep you and the kids thoroughly amused. Let the kids enjoy a handmade experience with Shisa-lion making, a demon of the famous legend represents the Ryukyu local guardian angel, or expend the family activities around the resort. Hike into the Yanbaru national park with the professional tour guide, kayaking or cycling with the sea wind.

Located in the Kunigami Village, a visit to Yanbaru Forest Toy Museum would be fun for the kids. With a big room full of wooden toys, it’s more like a wood-based playground than a museum!
