Swimming Beach

Setoda Sunset Beach is an 800-meter long beach recognized as one of Japanese 88 Swimming Beaches. Home to beautiful white sands and plenty of space for watersports, this beach waterfront is true to its name, offering up beautiful views of the sun as it sets of the Seto Inland Sea. There’s also camping, sea-kayaking, SUP boats and more for activity-lovers to enjoy.

The beach connects the cities of Onomichi and Imabari in Japan’s first ever cross-coastal biking trail, “Shimanami Kaido Cycling Road”, and even has a Rent-a-Cycle bike hub. If you’re cycling nearby, stopping here for a view of the coast and a rest at the cafe restaurant is one option to enjoy.

For sightseeing-fans, there are many nearby options, including the “Tatara-Ohashi Bridge & Hyoutan-Jima Island Cruise” pleasure boat, the three-story pagoda of Kojoji Temple, a national treasure built at the beginning of the Muromachi Period, and more to check during your travels.
