The Kaicyu-douro is a road connecting Okinawa Prefecture Uruma City and remote islands such as Henza Islands and Miyagi Island. It is a toll free road with a total length of about 5 km. It is almost straight, so you are feeling good when you are running.
The Kaichu-douro (ocean road) is a beautiful sea of Okinawa, both right and left. If you stop the car in the parking lot, you can feel free to enter the beautiful sea of the emerald green. A couple of tourists were also enjoying the sea of Okinawa like this.
Crossing the Sea road there is Henza Islands. I felt the relaxed time unique to the remote island of Okinawa. You can see Hamahiga-jima by seeing the left hand side from Henza Islands.
Drive that you can look at the beautiful sea of Okinawa is still going on. While feeling the relaxed time of the remote island of Okinawa, a calm and pleasant drive will follow.
Beyond Henza Island and Miyagi Island, I came to Ikei-jima. Crossing this Ikei Bridge is Ikeijima.
Overlooking the sea from the Ikei Bridge, it is clean with a deep green color, but it is somewhat scary. Because the width of the ocean is narrow, the tidal current is complicated and it seems not suitable for swimming.
Crossing the Ikei Bridge, Ikei Beach, which is also popular in Okinawa, is right there. This day I visited was a weekday in late April, but some tourists are already swimming. Because the weather was sunny, the sea is very beautiful. The deep ocean and the sand beach were really bright. On this site I posted the picture quality of photos taken with smartphones dropped, but still we can take such a beautiful picture.
Many marine sports menus are also available at Ikei Beach. From classic marine sports such as banana boat and marine jet, you can experience marine sports, such as mermaid experiences and fly boards, which you can not do on other beaches. I just dropped by at the drive this time, but I’d like to swim next. I saw the fly board on TV and I am a little interested.
If you are hungry in the middle of a drive I recommend a lunch buffet at the restaurant Ayahashi
If you are hungry in the middle of a drive, I recommend lunch buffet at the Ayahashi sea station. A relatively reasonable price of 1,000 yen for adults and 630 yen for children allows you to enjoy affordable lunch buffet. Restaurant Ayahashi is on the first floor of this sea station.
Souvenirs are sold at the sea station Ayahashi.
There is a restaurant entrance when going back inside the store.
In the restaurant Ayahashi you can enjoy lunch while watching the beautiful sea of Okinawa.
The dish of Uchinaa buffet Ayahashi is like this.
Adults are 1,000 yen, so the number of dishes is not so abundant, but it is just right for lunch. I recommend you to Tebichi and Nitsuke. Tebichi is well cooked and you can get a lot of plump collagen.
About Kaichu-douro (Sea road)
A road of about 5.2 km connecting the main island of Okinawa and Henza Island, a Kaichu-douro (Sea road). Looking at the right and looking at the left, the drive while looking at the beautiful beach in Okinawa will be full of exhilaration. For travelers enjoying Okinawa sightseeing by car hire, I want you to drive. You can enjoy the beautiful sea of Okinawa without swimming.
