If you are a once, there is a good possibility that you have seen the music video of “Dance The Night Away”, but did you know that it was actually one of Twice’s MV that was filmed in Japan?
This sandy beach is Akabaka Beach, located in Nakijin-son, Kunigami-gun, Okinawa Prefecture. It is located in the northwestern part of Okinawa island and takes about an hour and 40 minutes by car from Naha Airport. Okinawa (mainland) is very hard to transport around without a car, and Naha (the main city is located in the very southern area). They say that the more north you go, the more beautiful the sea. Akabaka has very limited so it is recommended to go early.
It is a private beach, which recently has been attracting tourists due to the various amount of TV appearances. The sand is a beautiful coral white color with the grains of sand being rather bigger compared to other beaches, but because of this reason, the sand doesn’t float well in the water.
With the sand sinking, it leads to the water having a high degree of transparency, and on clear days, you can see a beautiful gradation, with constant gentle waves. The surrounding area is covered by large slabs of Ryukyu limestone, which is composed of coral reef residue and other submarine sediments dating back to anywhere between about 100,000 to 1,300,000 years. Because of this, the beach is often used as a filming location for many TV shows and Music Videos.
