Hentona beach, beautiful clean water for swimming and snorkering

Today, I am showing, Hentona Beach in Okinawa's north area. The beach is white sand and clean water and fewer people.

When we visit Okinawa's main island, we look for a beautiful emerald green beach and go to Onna village area. It takes 1 hour drive from Naha airport, so it is easy to access. For this reason, the Onna area is popular and developed for the beach resort.

However, if you want to have tranquility in your mind and refresh deeply, you must go to the north area.

You can see clear water and a few people on the beach in the area. So you can have a deep breathing on your mind.

How to Access to Hentona Beach

By car, it takes around 2 hours from Naha International Airport. It is strongly recommended to take a car rental to go to Hentona.

There is access by public bus too. You take a highway bus from the airport to Nago City, 2nd big city of Okinawa's main island. And then take a bus to the North Okuma area.

There is one Teppanyaki restaurant in front of the beach, the other side of the road. It seems a normal house but it is really a restaurant. Okonomiyaki is good choice to order.
