Sunset Beach is a paid beach for summer only in the Kura area in the northern part of Ishigaki Island.

You can enjoy various activities such as snorkeling, SUP and wakeboarding at the here. The beach waves are calm and there are lifeguards, so it’s safe for families with young children.

In addition, there are facilities such as parking lots, toilets and showers, and you can enjoy BBQ too.

However, unlike the name, you can not see the sunset here. It is still bright during business hours. Since this beach is a paid beach, the road to the beach is closed outside of its business hours and you cannot go to the beach. Fusaki Beach is recommended for watching the sunset from the beach.


How to get to Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach is located in the northern part of Ishigaki Island. It takes about 70 minutes by car from the city center (around Bus Terminal or Ishigaki Port) and about 40 minutes from Ishigaki Airport.
You can get to Sunset Beach by route bus, rental car or taxi.

The beach is close to the bus stop and there are facilities such as showers and changing rooms, so you can go by route bus. However, please be aware of the time as there are not many buses to operate.

Go to Sunset Beach by route bus (Azuma Bus)

It is about a 2-minute walk from the bus stop to Sunset Beach. However, there are only three route buses (Azuma Bus) a day, so you need to be careful about the time.
