Sobama Beach

Sado's one and only extensive sandy beach!

Sobama Beach features one of the few long sandy beach in Sado, stretching four kilo metres. The water is crystal clear, and the swimming area is the largest in Sado. It is a secluded beach away from the town centre, and there are no houses nearby. Although the beach is a shoal, it is an unparalleled location for fully enjoying the pristineness of the waters and bathe. There are free campsite and lodges adjacent to the beach. Sobama Beach is currently attracting the attention of many people as a great base for exploring Sado.
