Sakaiura Beach 境浦(父島)

Chichijima, Ogasawara Village, Tokyo

Coral, tropical fish, and underwater ruins just a few minutes from the heart of Chichijima Island

A six-minute bus ride from the center of town sits Sakaiura Beach. With its calm and coral populated waters, it’s perfect for snorkeling and swimming. This is one of Chichijima’s most popular beaches. If you’re feeling adventurous, grab some snorkeling gear and inspect the coral covered ruins of Hinkomaru, a Japanese transport ship that was hit by a US Navy torpedo during the Pacific War.

Out of the water, beachside public facilities include a pavilion with a thatched roof made from Ogasawara Chinese fan palm. Relax there while you gaze out onto the ocean and try to spot the remains of Hinkomaru poking out just above the water’s surface.
