KagoshimaYurigahama Beach(Yoron Island)


Yurigahama Beach is a beach of pure white sand that appears only when the tides are low. The contrast between the sand beach and the highly transparent sea, which is layered with many shades of blue, is exquisitely beautiful. This is also called the ”phantom beach,” as the place where it appears and its shape changes with the rise and fall of the tides. The sand of Yurigahama beach is star-shaped, which has brought about the name of ”Hoshi no suna” (star sand,) and it is said that taking home as many grains of sand as your age in years brings happiness according to an anecdote about the spot.
