If you can walk to the beach, it is Painagama Beach.
Miyakojima has a number of beaches, and among them, the one closest to the city is Painagama Beach.
It is popular among tourists who enjoy swimming in the summer daytime, and it is very popular as a spot where you can see a beautiful sunset in the evening.
Walking distance from the city area. Citizen’s beach
You can go on foot from downtown where there are food and drink, accommodation, etc. Painagama beach is visited by many locals as well as tourists.
A rare accessible beach in Miyakojima Island.
The difference between this beach and the other beaches is that it is barrier-free.
First, the road from the parking lot to the beach is paved, and there are gentle slopes and handrails to get you down to the beach. It is a kind design that can be used casually by the elderly and wheelchair users.
There are also toilets and shower rooms for wheelchairs.
There are many beaches on the island, but it is probably only Painagama Beach that has been developed to this point.
Citizen’s place of rest.
Another feature of Painagama Beach is that there are awnings around the beach.
Students often use it because there are reading, watching the sea, taking breaks during walks, and a high school nearby.
There is a convenience store across the beach. There are also locals who eat lunch boxes and other items bought there in the awnings.
I want to enjoy the scenery on the beach because I can avoid the strong sunshine in the tropical resort, but it is also a perfect place for people who don’t like sunburn under the sun.
