Cape Manza in Onna Son

Dramatic Cliffs and Sunset views in Okinawa

By Yui Yamaguchi    - 1 min read

Cape Manza is famous for its iconic, dramatic cliffs and sunset views in Okinawa. Facing Northwest, the best times to take in this view is in the latter hours in the afternoon in the warmer months. While this place is popular with tour buses, a few minutes stroll along the winding track is all it takes to experience some peace and serenity.

Make sure you take a camera, a wind jacket and some walking shoes and it is only a little over 75 minutes north of Naha on the Highway, and it is best reached by car.
