Yuhigaura (Hamazume, Amino-cho)
The 8-kilometer stretch of white sands and green pines to Shotenkyo, Kumihama, with the shallow sea and rocky areas, bustle with bathers and fishers.
You can see a beautiful evening view that represents Tango at Sunset Beach where the red sun sets over the horizon.
There are benches along the “Yuhi-no-michi” promenade along the beach where you can relax and enjoy the sunset.
Kotohiki Beach (Kakezu, Amino-cho/Yu)
Kotohiki Beach in the northeast of Amino-cho is a 1.8-kilometer scenic beach with white sands and green pines. The sands of the beach are called “Nakisuna (chirping sands)” for the quartz contained in the sands produce a “squeaking” sound when walked on. Since the sands cannot produce the sound unless the beach is clean, visitors are requested to take away garbage and refrain from smoking to conserve the environment.
Hacchohama Beach (Asamogawa, Amino-cho)
The white sand beach from its center is San’in Kaigan National Park and Wakasa Wan Quasi-National Park. The lights on the fishing boats and the sun setting over the horizon at dusk stir romantic feelings in people.
The name of the beach is said to derive from the Haccho (872 meters) distance between Shimako Shrine and Manjo Rock.
Kobama Beach (Kobama, Amino-cho)
There are numerous 4 x 3-meter rocks along the beach from Haccho to Kotohiki below the mountain of Hachimanjo. The rocky stretch of Manjojiki has approximately 60cm striations running horizontally and vertically between the rocks, making them look like the edges of tatami mats when viewed from the mountain’s summit at high tide.
Goshikihama Beach (Shioe, Amino-cho)
Goshikihama Beach in San’in Kaigan National Park and its flat rocky stretch without a beach presents beautiful views with a complex, deeply indented coastline.
The cave carved away by the waves is geologically rare and contains well-polished round stones of many colors from which the name of Goshikihama derives. You can observe rock formations and a variety of organisms in the tidal pools, and enjoy fishing.
