Yonehara Beach is located near Kabira bay.
I'll update the gallery when I visit this beach again!
You can see many tropical fishes under the water from the top of the rocks. In particular, there are many small blue ones. If you gently approach the rocks, you can find large crabs.
The sand on this beach is fine, so you can walk comfortably. There aren't many pieces of coral or shells on the beach, other beaches are better for treasure hunting.
Shallow and calm sea. The rock areas are full of corals and fishes. If the tide is low and the water is shallow, it will be hard to do snorkeling. I recommend you to research the tide level before you visit.
You should bring your lunch and relax. When I visit this beach, I normally stay for 3 to 4 hours.
My favorite spot at the end of the beach. (Opposite side of the car parking.) There are tall rocks for shade. Few tourists come here since this is the end of the beach, however, this area is the best snorkeling spot.
On this beach, I took pictures of Hotaru glass hair sticks and necklaces. It was a lot of fun.
