Breathtaking Seascape at Takahama Beach
Ranked among the top 100 beaches in Japan for both beauty and swimming, Takahama Beach is a gorgeous site on the west coast of Fukue. Because of its distance from the city center, about 45 minutes by car, it is rarely crowded, and social distancing should be easy here most days of the year. The water remains shallow far away from the shore, making it a safe beach for children or non-swimmers to play in. Full facilities, including bathrooms and showers, are available during the peak summer season. Be sure to stop at the Gyoran Kannon Observation Point, where a large Buddhist statue overlooks one of the best views of Takahama Beach from the cliffs.

Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Experience
Whether you are a seasoned SUP surfer or have never set foot on one, Fukue is the perfect place to enjoy your next SUP experience. The waters on the east coast of Fukue can be calm as glass in the summer, so even the most inexperienced beginner can learn how to stand on a paddleboard with ease, assisted by one of the island’s friendly instructors. When you’re comfortable standing on your own, take a leisurely paddle inside the breakwater, or venture out along the coastline until you arrive at nearby Kojushi Beach, where a vehicle will be waiting to bring you back to where you started.
