Chinenmisaki Park

The Chinenmisaki park is located to the southeast of the main island of Okinawa. The park is popular among tourists because of the impressive view of the coast – it is a great place to take panoramas. The visit of the park does not take too long and can be easily combined with the sacred site Sefa Utaki located nearby.

Cape Zampa Lighthouse 

Cape Zampa is located on the western coast of Okinawa. At the cape’s end is located a white lighthouse open to the public. After climbing the winding and narrow staircase all the way to the top, one can enjoy an amazing view of the coast from the balcony encircling the top of the lighthouse.

Kouri Island Bridge

Kouri Island is connected to the main island of Okinawa by a long bridge that stretches over a beautiful blue ocean. Parking lots are located at the two ends of the bridge. I recommend parking at the one on the main island and crossing over to Kouri island using the bridge’s walkway. A small farmer’s market and a beach are located on Kouri island near the end of the bridge.
