Best campsites in Okinawa!

Here are three of the best campsites that we here at Okinawa RV rentals recommend. Remember that these campsites are recommended for camping with a car. 

If you're looking for a localized campsite with an Okinawan homie feel right on the water then Tonokiya Camping Ground is your spot. Here the google pin-

Listen to what some people are saying about this spot- 

“This place was perfect. The owner was helpful and friendly, the amenities (bathroom, shower, grill , fire pit) were not fancy but perfect for outdoors and the water is great for fishing and kayaking.”

“Oyakawa, the owner of the site, is a wonderful man who instantly feels like your long lost uncle. Beautiful place, peaceful and quiet, authentic and homely. Favorite campsite in Okinawa.”

We made a quick little video tour of this Okinawan campsite -

Listen to what some customers are saying about this campsite- 

“Great campsite on one of the beast beaches in Okinawa. You can pitch a tent or rent a hut which fits 10 people. It's only 20mins walk from town, or a short bus ride so it's very easy to get groceries or anything you might need during your stay. Watch the tide times as the turtles show up upon high tide and the swimming is much better (it's very shallow and the bottom is very rocky on low tide”)

“There is a high probability of meeting sea turtles🌴”

This site is right on the beach in a shaded wooded area and offers tent camping spots, car camping as well as it has cabins for rent! 

If you are taking your car or camping car over to Zamami, the ferry leaves Tomari Port at 10 a.m. and arrives in Zamami at 12 p.m. Be sure to get to the port early and bring your vehicle registration to show proof of the vehicle’s size. If you have any questions, call a day ahead. Another option is the high-speed boat that leaves Naha at 9 a.m. and arrives at Zamami at 9:50 a.m., or at 4 p.m. and arrives in Zamami at 5:10 p.m.
