Natural landscape

With 620-meter-long pristine white sand, Shirarahama Beach is one of the best beaches in the Kansai area and selected among the best 100 bathing beaches in Japan. About 600,000 people visit the beach every year.

In summer, the colorful parasols stand around on the pure white sand. Clear blue-green ocean and lines of pine trees add more to the atmosphere, much like that of foreign beach resorts.
Also, you can bath in the hot spring waters at the Shirarayu Onsen, which faces Shirarahama beach and offers a view out to the sea.

Various events are held here; a sand festival, fireworks display, and the Kumano Pirate treasure hunt, and a candlelight illumination event. (Check the official website for the details about each event)
