Where to stay in Motobu-cho

Most visitors to Motobu-cho opt to spend their time by the sea, so accommodations have positioned themselves accordingly. Choose from a number of beachfront hotels, resorts, and guesthouses located close to the aquarium and botanical garden, and on Sesoko Island. By the harbor in the main urban area, a few homestays and guesthouses dot the largely residential part of town. As a general rule, urban areas farther inland offer more budget-friendly rooms, whereas lodgings in non-urban areas farther inland tend to be pricier retreats making the most of the scenery and seclusion.
