Take a trip to Okinawa's terrific Torii Beach
Although Torii Station may not stand out when comes to its size and the number of servicemembers it hosts, the small Army base is home to a beachside recreational area that will leave a big smile on your face: Torii Beach.
Whether you’re a family looking to play in the water and picnic, or a group of friends in the mood to camp, play a little volleyball and unwind, Torii Beach is the perfect location.
Located in the west part of the installation, beach access from Torii’s main gate is very simple. All you need to do is go straight down the hill, make a left at the end, and you should be close to the beach’s entrance in less than five minutes. Passing by sugarcane fields, the ocean blue and white beaches come into sight. It’s beautiful and peaceful, the perfect place to get away from the daily grind. And, yes, if you can’t go without your mobile devices, Wifi is available.
Lining up along the long stretch of white sand are cabins, a campground, pavilions, a water slide fit for kids of all ages and shower and bathroom facilities. MWR Torii has you covered with any camping, grilling and water sports gear you might need to rent, so it is the perfect place for beach parties with family and friends, or unit parties.
Although events like the Torii Beach Summer Party Series and Ghost on the Beach can pack the facility, this nicely secluded location always gives off a relaxed vibe. It’s a great place to run along the shore, read a book or sit alone enjoying the peaceful view.
Just a 20-30-minute drive away from Gate 1 of Kadena Air Base, Torii Beach offers a quick getaway from the ordinary.
