Yui Maenosu Intertidal Shore Platform
A highly recommended spot for enjoying spectacular sunset views.
The waters along the coast here are very shallow, and with good weather conditions the water surface becomes a natural mirror, reflecting the sun.
This platform is composed of sediments from the time when the land forming the current island was located at the bottom of a large lake (about 20 million years ago). The land was later eroded by wind and waves, and continues to be eroded today.
Maenosu forms the largest wave-cut platform on Dōgo Island, with an expanse of 170 m by 220 m. Bring your sandals and take a leisurely walk through the shallow waters while enjoying the sunset.
- *Watch out for shells while walking as their edges are sharp.
