An Island Paradise Perfect for a Casual Day Trip
The island of Mizushima is a small, uninhabited island just 100 meters off the end of the Tsuruga Peninsula. This lively summer destination is nicknamed “the Hawaii of the Hokuriku Region” for its white sandy beaches and clear blue waters. Visitors can go swimming with the many fish in the shallow water, and go snorkeling for a closer encounter—or simply relax on the beach of this narrow, 500-meter-long island and collect shells.
There are daily ferries to and from the island that run during beach season, from mid-July to late August. These ferries leave from two different ports on the Tsuruga Peninsula.
