Along the coast of Ise-Shima National Park, sturdy plants such as Hibiscus hamabo in Gokasho Bay withstand the powerful sea breezes and sand they whisk around. In the water, seagrass and seaweed beds stretch from the mouth of Ise Bay and the coast off the Shima Peninsula.
The inlets around Toba Bay and Ago Bay are excellent places to spot large flocks of black-tailed gulls and herring gulls. The sandy beaches across the park are egg-laying sites for loggerhead turtles. Japanese spiny lobsters inhabit the rocky intertidal zone of the Kumanonada Sea shore. Local tide pools also shelter sea anemone, shrimp and goby.
