Sights

Higashi-henna Zaki (Cape Higashi-henna)

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 09/20/2013

Fodor's Review

If you have a couple of hours to spare, take a leisurely walk out to see Cape Higashi-henna's rugged landscape. A twisty, narrow road atop a spine of rock leads through a thatch of green grass out to a lonely, perfectly lovely lighthouse. The 2-km (1-mile) peninsula retains an impressive, end-of-the-earth feeling; and in spring the ground is covered with trumpet lilies. The multicolor coral can be viewed from above. Allow about one hour to walk from the Bora bus stop at Boraga Beach. If you rent a scooter in Hiraga, you can ride to the end of the road next to the lighthouse.
