Selected by the tourism ministry as one of the best water areas in Kansai.
Kataonami is a natural jetty, which protects the mouth of the Wakagawa River and features a wide beach and picturesque scenery. At low tide, the shoals become exposed and many adults and children flock to the beach to harvest shellfish.
The other side of the jetty also sees year-round activity, as the beach draws many visitors every year. In addition to the white sand beach and blue-green water, Kataonami also has a fully modern beach house, equipped with changing rooms, coin lockers, showers, and toilets. There are also souvenir stands, and other shops as well as municipal and prefectural parking areas.
Bus from Nankai Wakayama-shi Station / JR Wakayama Station, 10 minutes by foot from Wakanoura / Furobashi bus stop.
