ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

The coast of the Goshikihama area is rocky. From the parking lot, you can observe the coastal platform below. This coastal platform consists of 15-million-year-old tuff rocks. You can observe multitudes of potholes on the surface of the coastal platform. The surrounding area is a marine park with excursion paths. On the rocky coast and in the pools, you can observe sea creatures. The complex shapes of the rocks give you some idea of what the ancient plateau was like in ancient times. The beach is called Goshikihama―literally “the beach of five colors”―because various-colored grains are contained in the sand.
