The contrast between the red cliff and the emerald green sea looks beautiful here. There is a myth that a goddess gave birth on the Akiya Coast. The delivery room (Tarai-iwa Rock) and the sheer cliff seem to float on the surface of the sea. The sheer cliff has a heart-shaped hole is called “Heart Rock.” This has become popular as a power spot for good luck and marriage in recent years.This is a superb swimming area and diving spot in summer. A campground managed by the town has also been set up here.
