Onsen Hoyōland has wonderful giant mud baths, as well as mixed-gender and open-air bathing.
The owner of Ichinoide Kaikan is an onsen fanatic, so much so that he built three pool-sized rotemburo in his backyard. The view, overlooking Beppu and the bay, is the city's finest...
The Hells, though mildly interesting, shouldn't distract you from the real hot springs. Scattered around the town are eight onsen areas...
Ekimae Kōtō Onsen is very simple and hot, and just a couple of minutes' walk from the station.
For an onsen experience next to the beach, head to Kitahama. There are separate baths for men and women; the outside rotemburo mixes it up, but you'll need a bathing suit.
Between JR Beppu station and the Kamegawa onsen area, try the very popular Shōnin-ga-hama Sand Bath ; it has a great beach location and English is spoken.
