Oarai Beach is one of two beaches in the town of Oarai. While Sun Beach features pristine sand, Oarai is a pebble beach with rocky outcrops in the sea. In addition to swimming during the summer, Oarai Beach attracts visitors exploring the area's rock pools and looking for marine life like hermit crabs.
The beach is home to the stunning floating shrine gate, Kamiiso-no-Torii. It is also a few minutes from Oarai Isosaki Shrine, seafood restaurants, and beachside ho s. Aquaworld Aquarium is only a short drive or a 20-minute walk from Oarai Beach.
