Sunabe Seawall
PROGRAM Sunabe Seawall

Level 1 / Snorkel

Sunabe is one of Okinawa's top dive spots. The limestone rocks slope into cracks, crevasses and cliffs, and visibility averages 50 feet. At the edge of the reef is a soft coral garden, home to various anemone and clownfish. You may also spot an occasional cuttlefish, octopus, shrimp, crab or squid. Mollusks, including tritons, cowries, and murexes, like to seek shelter within coral and rock carpets.

From Kitamae Gate on Camp Foster, turn right onto Highway 58. Go north for 3.7 km; you will pass Camp Lester on the right. There will be a SEGA arcade on the left, at the stop light at Hamagawa Road. Turn left and go .7 km and follow the road as it curves right. You will see the seawall on the left. You can dive at any point from the seawall.

Sunabe is usually free of the sudden current changes that characterize other dive sites. Although the winter season brings waves up to six feet high, flat seas are the norm.
