Oarai Sunbeach (Oarai Town)
Oarai Sunbeach is one of Ibaraki’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting thousands of people everyday during the summer months. The beach is particularly popular thanks to its wide sands and shallow waters.
Oarai Sunbeach is also a ‘Universal Beach’ meaning it is accessible for wheelchair users and other people with limited mobility. Wheelchairs for use in the sea are available to borrow and accessible changing rooms are available.
The beach is located just 10 minutes’ walk from restaurants and souvenir shops.
