Aharen Beach is the main beach in Tokashiki Island. It has a white smooth sand beach is a total length of 800 meters. There are a lot of beautiful corals in the offing, and you can meet colorful tropical fish!

To guests participating in day tour of Marine House Aharen
Our shuttle bus  will wait at the Tokashiki Port parking according to the your arrival time of booking. The bus stop is our beach house “Hauoli” near the entrance of Aharen Beach. You can use a changing and shower room at Hauoli.

How to get to Aharen Beach

Aharen Beach is a 15-minute drive away from Tokashiki Port. In the case of a day trip, the stay time is short, so using a local bus is common.

MEMO
It takes about an hour on foot, but we are concerned wild boars sometimes have been seen from 2017. You may think going by a bicycle is speedy than walking, but we don’t recommended it because there is steep slopes on the way.

A taxi is a ten-seater and only two taxis are available in the island. If you miss a return bus to Tokashiki Port, you can’t get a taxi easily and no way to go back to the port anymore. That’s why please don’t miss the bus.

There are no local bus between Aharen Beach and Tokashiku Beach. If you want to go both, please rent a car or a motorbike.
