Manza Beach (Kinda)

A couple Saturdays ago (it's been a crazy month!) I went with some friends to a new beach! Manza Beach is the beach that ANA Intercontinental Resort uses for their guests. I always thought you had to pay to use their beach. Turns out I was wrong! They do charge you 500 yen to park though. 

We actually didn't end up going to Manza Beach. Right by the parking lot there is a little path down a beach. This beach only had a few people and didn't have the obstructed views Manza did. It's right in between Nabee Beach and Manza. This perfect spot is going on the list of my favorite beaches here. I love the Onna area and their beaches are so beautiful! If you haven't been here you should add it to your list. Some more pictures from our day below.

Me, Natalie, Taylor and our baby girls!
Natalie had a great idea to fill a bucket with water and then bury it in the sand. The girls loved splashing in it. Brings the water to them!
It was a Saturday well spent!

  5. I love that beach! It's one of my favourites, although you definitely need reef shoes. I also love Nabee. I love that one that kinda Manza beach you can always find a shady spot to sit. Also, there's good snorkelling :)
