Cape Maeda | The best snorkeling site in Okinawa.

Popular Snorkeling spot, Great Views

※Cape Maeda is a spectacular site, but please make safety a priority.

  1. Cape Maeda Facility Management Office manages ONLY the property. We are NOT responsible for any water accidents. Guests are required to take full responsibility for their own acts and accidents.
  2. Life jackets and/or floating belts must be worn when snorkeling.
  3. No swimming is allowed when the Cape Maeda Facility Management Office closes the stairs to the water due to severe weather or bad sea conditions.

INFORMATION

NEWS

There has been an increase in the number of incidents involving people jumping from the cliff walls inside the cave into the sea below. This is extremely dangerous to anyone swimming, snorkeling, or SCUBA diving inside the cave. The staff of Cape Maeda requests all visitors to please refrain from any such activities.


Please do not park along the street.
Local residents would like all guests visiting the
Cape Maeda area, including the beaches, to park their
vehicles in the designated parking area of Cape Maeda.
Parking along the street causes traffic problems and
also poses difficulties for local farmers trying to
access their farmland.
