Yakutsu Beach (屋久津海岸) in Tanegashima

A little over 5km south of Nagahama Beach (and 10km south of where it meets Route 58 in Nakatane) is Yakutsu Beach in Minamitane Town. Follow Route 588 south until you find it on your right-hand side.

It is easy to spot by the line of parked cars belonging to enthusiastic beach-goers.

Yakutsu is a fun sandy beach, fine for swimming and a favorite of local surfers. 

 The sunsets over the long stretch of sand are as spectacular as any on the island.
