Okinawa beach children can also swim with tropical fish together "Bisesaki Beach"
If you want to swim in the beautiful Okinawa beach! If you also want children to swim with nature’s tropical fish. You want your children to feel the nature of the sea in Okinawa. But you do not know where the beach is good. Where children can also swim with tropical fish is “Bisesaki Beach”. Actually my daughter in the second grade of elementary school also swims with tropical fish many times. Until now I’ve been introducing beach near the coast and, the surroundings of the reaf. You can enjoy the sea of Okinawa well with the children even near the coast, but the place on the west side of Bisesaki Beach is also fun with another atmosphere. I will introduce it with videos which are actually swimming this time as well. The red part below is the west side of Bisesaki beach which I swam this time.

Let you see my daughter was swimming with tropical fish

Let’s see my daughter was actually swimming with tropical fish. Even a girl in the second grade of an elementary school can touch a natural tropical fish like this.

The figure that she reaches out to touch the tropical fish hardly looks cute. If popular tropical fish such as sparrow ears, rurious sharks, tsunodashi etc. reach out, you can swim together at the reachable distance. Bisesaki beach, if children have a life jacket and snorkeling properly, they can swim with tropical fish like this!

Next, please see how she was swimming in a different place.

The west area of this Bisesaki beach has a depth of 2 to 3 m at high tide, and children can not swim easily. But At low tide it will be less than 1 m deep, so even your child will reach their feet. At low tide the waves are also calm so you can swim with confidence. Because it is a little far from the coast, it is quite a place not to swim except local people, so it can be said a spot. You can walk at low tide.

On the western side of Bisesaki Beach, you can enjoy the sea environment which is different from the coast and the surroundings of the reef

The western area of Bisesaki Beach has a different atmosphere near the coast and around the reef. There are not so many rocks, seaweed growing in the sandy as a dugong’s food growing. And in some places yellow coral can be seen. And around the coral there are many tropical fish swimming.

There are also many tropical fish. Even if you do not have a bait, a lot of sparrow eyes will come just by putting out your hands. It’s pretty interesting. They will also hit my smartphone (laugh). Since the waves are calm, I really feel comfortable swimming. You can swim for around 2-3 hours.

It is located in Okinawa’s classic sightseeing spots, Churaumi Aquarium and Bise Fukugi Namiki. If you come to the Churaumi Aquarium, please try visiting Bisesaki Beach by all means. You can enjoy not only the aquarium but also the real natural sea environment. This time I introduced the western area of Bisesaki Beach. The beach where you can swim with nature corals and tropical fish at snorkeling is precious in Okinawa island. If you can not swim, you can see tropical fish and coral reefs from the coast. If coming to the Churaumi Aquarium, and not go to Bisesaki Beach, it is a loss!

Notes on swimming at Bisesaki Beach

Bisesaki beach is not a dangerous beach, but it is still a natural beach so there are notes I want to let you know in order to enjoy the sea of Okinawa safely. In order to enjoy the sea of Okinawa safely, please pay attention to the following points.

1. Let's prepare exercise

Feeling rises in the sea of Okinawa, you suddenly swim and my legs stick. Not only does this hurt, you feel quite dented. In order not to do so, let's get into the sea by doing a preparatory movement properly.

2. Attention to sunburn

The sunlight in Okinawa is quite amazing. The amount of ultraviolet rays is about ten times that of Japan main island! Swimming for 1 or 2 hours will pretty get sunburned. You can not prevent sunblocks alone. You can not be relieved even in a cloudy sky. As you are swimming, you are wet in the water, so you do not notice the burning on the sun. So I'd recommend swimming in clothes like Rush guards. It is stretchy and easy to move, it is perfect for swimming in the sea as it dries quickly. It also serves to prevent scratches. A woman makes it difficult to see the body line.

3. Attention to scratches and cuts by coral

Bisesaki Beach is a natural beach, so coral reefs and rocks are natural as it is. So swimming may cause injuries such as scratches or cuts. Especially because the feet are easy to get hurt, I recommend you to wear Marine shoes and swim. Marine shoes are the best because sandals will take off. Since you can buy it at around 1,000 yen, please prepare for injury prevention.

4. If not good at swimming and children should wear life jackets

The sea has high tide and low tide, depending on the time, the water depth is different even in the same place. At low tide, the water depth may be 1 m or less, but 2 m or more at high tide. Even at low tide, there are places where legs can not reach depending on the location. Even floating bags are okay, but Life jackets are the best to swim with tropical fish with underwater glasses on.

5. If you want to shoot underwater videos with smartphones, there are items like this

The underwater videos introduced on this page were taken with a smartphone. I shot a normal smartphone with a Waterproof case. If you have a waterproof case like the picture below, everyone can easily shoot underwater videos. Because it can be used in the sea or in the pool, it is perfect for the summer leisure! However, in the water, the touch panel of the smartphone can not be used at all. This can not be helped. . . . As a precaution, you had better use waterproof tests with tissue before use.

6. Attention to the flow of the tide

The sea repeats high tide from low tide to low tide from high tide at roughly 12 hour cycle. In the case of low tide from high tide the tide draws, so the water depth gradually becomes shallow. Just as seawater draws, it flows in a direction away from the coast. Please note that the water depth is deep in the middle of the flowing direction. The flow is pretty fast flowing. It is a flow faster than swimming speed. Indeed, I also picked up some children who are running away by the rhythm. But Since the depth of water is shallow, it will not be washed off the coast . Please do not worry.

Attention to the flow of the tide

At high tide from low tide is the reverse flow. Tide is good. The link destination is Naha's data, but the time of the tide level does not change so much depending on the location, so you recommend you check in advance.

7. If you want to know more about the beautiful beaches of Okinawa, these books are recommended

I introduce the books that I actualy bought as reference. As for "Okinawa beach great 505", I often admire that he has studied only this much, and many beaches of Okinawa are introduced with photos. "Okinawa Snorkeling Guide" is featured 50 points carefully selected for beginners to enjoy. I also want to swim all seas. I will do my best to make it possible.
