Cape Zanpa

A scenic spot where you can enjoy the entire day until the sun sets


Cape Zanpa is located in Yomitan Village in the central part of Okinawa Island. The entire Cape Zanpa Park is designated as a national park. At a height of 30 meters the precipitous cliff overlooks the East China Sea and has a panoramic view of the south, west, north and northeast that is sure to impressive visitors. The contrast between the blue sea and the stark white Zanpa Lighthouse at the tip of the cape is stunning. Cape Zanpa is located at the westernmost point of Okinawa Island and is the last place on the island where the sun sets. It is also a renowned sunset viewing spot.




Furthermore there is the largest shisa guardian lion in Japan that measures 8.75 meters tall and 7.8 meters long. The statue of Taiki, a god of business from the Ryukyu Kingdom period, pointing towards Fujian Province in China is a popular photo spot.

Right next to the precipitous cliff of Cape Zanpa is a white sandy beach with clear water called Zanpa Beach. Besides swimming, you can try fly boarding (water jetpack), jet skiing, diving and other activities. Cape Zanpa is a place where you can spend the entire day, until the sun sets.
