Drive in the middle of the sea

  • Views

Kaichu Road is a 4.7 km long road that connects “Yokatsu-hatou (Yokatsu Peninsula)” and “Henza-jima (Henza Island)”. Both sides of the road are surrounded by the sea, making you feel like you are driving through the ocean.

At the midpoint of the road, there is a parking area called “Umi no Eki Ayahashi”. There, you can take a break and have lunch or buy souvenirs. On the second floor, there is cultural archive about the Uruma city’s ocean.

Kaichu Road is part of Road No.10, which connects several islands.

At “Hamahiga-jima (Hamahiga Island)”, an island connected to Henza-jima by a bridge, there is a hotel resort where you can enjoy lunch or have a cup of tea.

From Hamahiga-jima, if you go past “Miyagi-jima (Miyagi Island)” and over the red bridge, you will reach “Ikei-jima (Ikei Island)”. The beach here is exceptionally beautiful and is perfect for swimming.

When you drive through Kaichu Road, you must be careful not to speed. Since the road is mainly straight throughout, many people tend to go over the speed limit. Always remember to drive carefully and to follow the road indications.
