THE BEST BEACH IN KANSAI! This famous beach/hot spring resort area, located on the southern part of the Kii Peninsula in Wakayama Prefecture (facing the Pacific Ocean), is known for is beautiful white sands (imported from Australia), scrumptious seafood and luxury resorts. The beaches here are relatively clean and quite beautiful, and there are also some tourist attractions (many geared toward children) in case you are going as a family or on a date.
It’s a couple hours from Osaka by JR limited express (Shirahama Station).
A small safety note: Jellyfish tend to arrive in large numbers during the later part of summer, so please exercise caution from August 15 onward if you plan to go swimming in the ocean.
