EVENT INFO

Hedo Beach, Level 4
Hedo Point, Level 5

Hedo Point's currents—caused by the meeting of the Pacific Ocean and East China Sea—make for spectacular diving. But do not go in on an outgoing tide! Tunicate colonies make their home on the reef, along with coral, sponges, crinoids, starfish, and lobsters.

To get there, travel north on Highway 58 past Okuma. Turn left at the blue sign that reads "Hedo Misaki," about 40 km past Nago. Make the second right and follow the road to the beach. To enter the water, walk across the shallows. Suit up near the water's edge. Use caution when diving near the fingerlike cuts in the reef. Unpredictable currents can create hazardous diving conditions.
