Welcome to Keomuku Road
The 8-mile road gently slopes down to the coast in a series of switchbacks, through a mostly barren landscape punctuated by eccentrically shaped rocks. The paved road ends near the coast and you are in 4WD country. To the left, a dirt road leads to Shipwreck Beach, while turning right onto Keomuku Rd takes the adventurous to Keomuku Beach or all the way to Naha.
Keep your eyes open – sightings of wild mouflon sheep on the inland hills are not uncommon. Males have curled-back horns, and dominant ones travel with a harem. You may also see white-spotted axis deer.
