Mikasahama Beach, Hatsukaichi

#1 of 6 in Beaches in Hiroshima Prefecture
Beach · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Featuring a narrow strip of coarse yellow sand, Mikasahama Beach offers views of a "floating" torii, the famous sacred red gate of the Itsukushima sanctuary. During the day, there is hardly enough room on the sand to spread a couple of towels, but as the day goes by and the tide recedes, more people come to the beach to stroll along the shore and enjoy picturesque sunset views across the water to the Japanese mainland. Keep an eye open for the friendly deer that roam around the beach looking for food. To visit Mikasahama Beach and other attractions in Hatsukaichi, use our Hatsukaichi travel planner.
