Isso Beach is a swimming beach that is only open during summer vacation. The port city Isso, which is home to Isso Beach, is located at Yakushima Island's northernmost point and is treasured as a landmark where fishers can confirm the location of their boats. On the opposite side of the swimming beach is a diving spot and a giant coral reef where plenty of colorful fish can be seen. Showers, changing rooms, and rest areas are available at the beach, so visitors can be comfortable even after swimming. Beach huts open during summer vacation as well, and the area bustles with lots of people. Nearby there are all kinds of leisure facilities including athletic fields and campgrounds, making it a popular destination for families.
