OVERVIEW

Nestled along the rocky tip of Nagasaki peninsula, Takahama beach is the ideal location for a daytrip to the seaside. The 800m beach, is protected by a sturdy breakwater at one end and the bushy outcrop of Mt. Benten at the other. Known for its superb water quality, Takahama beach is named amongst Japan’s top 88 beaches and coastlines.

Calm waves and shark nets ensure a safe swim for everyone, while the shady platforms of ‘Takashima Island’ beach house provides some respite from the summer sun. From the stands, enjoy the dramatic backdrop of Gunkanjima, or ‘Battleship Island’ which is located directly across from the beach. The adjoining food court serves light meals, udon noodles, curry-rice, yakisoba, gyudon, hot chips, and kakigori to satisfy hungry bellies.
