Hedo Misaki

North of Nago, Okinawa Honto is only scarcely populated and mainly covered by forests and hills. Hedo Misaki (Cape Hedo) is the island's northernmost tip, offering spectacular views of the cliffy coast.

The main approach to Hedo Misaki leads along the western coast, where, halfway between Nago and the cape, there is a hiking trail to the Hiji Waterfall and a JAL resort hotel around Okuma Beach.

The less direct approach to Hedo Misaki along the more scenic, less developed eastern coast is recommended due to its beautiful coastal scenery. However, in order to explore the eastern coast, you will need your own transportation, such as a rental car, because there is no scheduled bus service along the eastern coast to Hedo Misaki.
