Many people who go to Okinawa for the first time and don’t have enough time just go to artificial sandy beaches made on the coast. It’s always packed at those places, and since they are “artificial”, they’re not as beautiful as other “natural” beaches.
So if you have enough time to drive a little far from the hectic city or at least if you can have time to make plans before you go to Okinawa, why don’t you try to go to the northern part of the main island? In the northern part of the main island of Okinawa, there are a lot of beautiful beaches where you can enjoy some quiet time.
Drive down Route 8, which is the main street on the island. You can find some beaches without too many cars and people. You might be unable to take a shower there after you swim, but it’s worth trying if you want to get away from your daily life and have some peaceful time.

Okinawa is well-known for scuba diving. Many scuba divers go there and often they stay inside the ocean most of the time. They all say the inside of the ocean is breathtaking and they get addicted to it since it’s just so beautiful. And many of them come back to Okinawa again and again just to do scuba diving!
Don’t worry even if you have never tried scuba diving. You can do trial scuba diving with professional instructors. Peeking into the ocean and meeting all the sea creatures must be so wonderful!
