Located immediately adjacent to the beach itself, in a maintained grassy field, you and your family can hang out at one of the many picnic tables well-shaded by large gazebo’s.

Azama Sun Sun Beach is in eastern most part of Nanjo City, Okinawa Island. It is about a 40-minute drive from the heart of Naha if you drive directly.
The central pathway from the parking area has steps, however there are accessible ramps to either side of it, making the main building easily accessible. Beyond the main building there are various paved pathways to different parts of the beach. The pathways out onto the jetties are paved and accessible by wheelchair, but there are no rails so they should be taken with caution.
There are beach mats and beach wheelchairs can be borrowed from the office in the main building.
If you are not using a beach wheelchair, the grassy and sand areas bay be difficult to access. Access from much of the paved area onto the sand has multiple steps, they can be avoided but may require going down to the end of the beach where there is a slope.
Various sitting areas (such as the covered picnic tables) are located throughout the area, making it easier for those who need to rest between walking. The gazebos have a step into them but sand and grass can act as a natural ramp for some of them. A ramp leading up to the rooftop of the main building can be found on the south side of the building.
Though pets are not allowed on the beach, service dogs (seeing-eye dogs, assistance dogs, and hearing dogs) are allowed in the area.
There is a wheelchair accessible toilet available located near the office by the parking area. There is a simple toilet (no backrest) and sink, as well as a shower chair and handheld shower to use after enjoying the beach. The bathroom is locked, but staff at the front desk will unlock it upon request.
