Akiya Beach and Akiya Campground (reservation required) are also here.

Akiya Coast is located on the northeastern coast of Nakanoshima Island and faces the Dōgo Channel. The highest tides cover parts of the path along the cliff, and the sea can be rough at times. Please stay alert to weather conditions.
