Kodanohama is a beautiful beach located on Kesennuma’s scenic Oshima Island. It is ranked one of the twelve best swimming beaches in Japan by the Ministry of the Environment. While not large, the pristine white sand and calm waters are sure to wash away the weariness of the everyday.
The beach is open for swimming from mid-July to mid-August, with lifeguards on duty from morning to late afternoon. There are showers, toilets and food stalls available. The Oshima Paddle Club (オオシマパドルクラブ) offers stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) lessons here in summer.
