One of the most surprising aspects of Fukuoka, for new visitors, is its access to beautiful beaches and marine life. Keya Beach was nominated as one of Japan’s top 100 beaches and as the water is shallow it’s the ideal hangout for families with kids to splash in the water and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere that the Fukuoka seaside has to offer. Keya Has some beautiful views of lush mountains and has a great selection of quirky and cool beachside cafes and stands. The beachside also plays host to an annual music festival, Sunset Live, (check with organizer for confirmation in 2020) and Keya as a whole plays a critical role as the local area’s cultural hub.
