This natural Southern Okinawa beach is a popular SCUBA diving and snorkeling spot with both locals and visitors to Okinawa. Many sea creatures can be seen in their natural environment in the sea and on Odo Coast (John Man beach) as it is a popular place for sea turtles to come lay their eggs. The beach has only a few facilities such as toilets, pay showers, and a small shop open during the summer season.

There are no life guards on duty at Odo Coast (John Man beach) so it is important to note a few thing.The sand at this southern Okinawa beach is a bit rough on the feet as the environment of the beach is kept in a more of a natural state than many of the more popular Okinawa beaches so be sure to bring sandals. The most important thing to mention is the presence of the toxic sea anemone, more specifically the Usaunbachi Anemone that has a strong toxin. If stung by it the wound should be washed with clean ice water and professional treatment should be sought out.
