Fodor's Review

Maehama, or as you may see on local signs, "Yonaha Maehama," is regarded by many as Japan's best beach, and it lives up to its reputation. White sand stretches for miles on a smooth, shallow shelf extending far into the warm, clear water. In front of the Tokyu Resort there's a section of water that is netted-off to protect swimmers from jellyfish, and a lifeguard on duty from 9 to 6. Water-sports equipment rentals, showers, refreshments, toilets, and showers are available

at a beach shack. Take on your friends or the locals at beach volleyball—this is an amazing place to play a game.The beach is 25 minutes from Hirara via bus. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: sunset; swimming; volleyball.
