Gorgeous, convenient beach
Shirahama Beach was the first beach we ever took our daughter to in Japan, so it holds some special memories for us - I can't believe I haven't reviewed it already. Parking is available right out the front of the beach area, but the times we've visited were mid-week trips. I don't know how easy it would be to park there on a weekend in the peak of summer so just bear that in mind. Another nice thing is that there are convenience stores close by if you need snacks or drinks. I also recommend South Cafe which is a short drive away if you're looking for somewhere to grab lunch - it has a great atmosphere and delicious eats and drinks.
Gorgeous Beach in Shizuoka!
It's summer time, aka beach time! This year, I decided I wanted to stray away from the beach I usually visit! It was time for a change. I ended up going to Shizuoka to check out beaches with my friends. We chose Shirahama beach and I am happy we did! The water was so clear, I could see my feet even when the water was up to my shoulders. There were a lot of people, but the beach was big, so it was fine! The only downside is that all of the parking lots close early! So if you aren't staying at a hotel, be careful! There are a lot of cute shops and restaurants nearby too!
