Notes on swimming at Sakimotobu Beach

Sakimotobu 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

Your feeling rises in the sea of Okinawa, suddenly swims and your muscles are stuck and convuls. This is not only painful, it is very dangerous because you may drown while you are swimming. In order not to do so, let 's make a preparatory movement properly and enter the sea.

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 or rocks

Sakimotobu 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. At high tide from low tide is the reverse flow. Tide forecast.com 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.
