Nabee beach is a free public beach located within Onna Seaside Civil Park. Its beautiful white sand, shallow water teeming with fish and soft sandy seabed make it a favourite with both local families and holiday-makers. Nabee beach sits between the ANA Intercontinental Manza Beach Hotel and Cape Manzamo giving a great view of both, and is the closest point to view the wedded rocks of Onna, especially pretty at sunset.

The free parking is plentiful and there are facilities such as showers, toilets, sun-loungers for rent in the summer, vending machines and restaurant. The beachside BBQ is available for 5500 yen and includes all equipment, just reserve it in advance. Although we have never done any of the marine activities here, there are many options available. Kayaking, snorkelling and banana boating are the most popular.

The recently-added beach swing which gives really great views over the sea is our new favourite part of Nabee Beach and makes a nice photo opportunity. The promise of a play on the playground on the far side of the parking area is the only way we can get the kids off the beach and here they can play happily until we head home.
