Snorkelling and Swimming
Snorkelling area, depends on weather. All these beaches have no lifeguard, so you have to know how to swim for sure.
Outside 道の駅おおぎみ, there is a beach called 根路銘海岸. There are nice corals and fish out there.
This is a place in Onna 恩納, Route 6 on the map. Many tourists but it is a beautiful place. However, check out the weather before you go there. There is a live webcam to see if swimming is allowed.
This place is in Motobu 本部. It has many nice big fish. It can get busy but it depends. If the waves are too big, do not go snorkeling there, it can be dangerous. We once swam out the deeper part and the view was spectacular.
Running, Hiking and Cycling
Running along the coast on route 58, either towards north or south. It has the perfect road to train for marathon. Up the routes to the forests, there are so many nice nature sceneries for you to explore.
