Channel Crevasses
PROGRAM Channel Crevasses

Level 4

One of Okinawa's most spectacular coastal areas is found at Channel Crevasses. Visibility reaches 150 feet or more. Nooks, crannies and rocks make a natural dwelling place for crab and lobster. Sea turtles lay their eggs in a protected area on the beach. Beyond the reef, you can see cones, turbans, augers and other shellfish. Beware of strong rip currents during extreme tidal changes.

This site is located about an hour south of Kadena Air Base. Take Highway 58 south through Naha. Highway 58 merges Into Highway 331. Take 331 and continue traveling south. Once through the rotary In Itoman, take the Highway 331 bypass to Yonabaru. When you approach the Intersection of Highways 331 and 7 slow down. Approximately .7 km past the Intersection, you will see a blue and white sign that says "Odo Coast." Turn right at this sign, heading toward the water. At the "T" intersection (dirt road) turn left and proceed to the parking area. (If you get to Peace Park, you have gone too far.) The beach area is accessible to 4WD vehicles only.
