Nagata Inakahama, Yakushima-cho

Beach · Nature / Park
Take in the unspoiled beauty of the white sand beach at Nagata Inakahama, a quiet stretch of coast with clear waters and picturesque views. Go for a walk or swim, snap some photos, and relax on the sand. One of the main highlights here happens between May and August: at night, you can witness the rare loggerhead turtle coming ashore to lay its eggs. In one of nature's most interesting life cycles, around 500 turtles visit here each year, the same beach they were born on 10 to 20 years prior.
