Inakahama Beach is one of the precious few sand beaches in Yakushima. It is known as the largest site in the north pacific where sea turtles come to lay their eggs, and is registered by the Ramsar Convention as valuable wetlands.
From June to mid-July, the beach welcomes the peak season for loggerhead turtles to lay their eggs, and at its peak, you can see more than 20 large loggerhead turtles with a total length of 1 meter or more overnight.
