Okinawa’s Ocean Playground: Infinite possibilities in a breathtaking location

Metropolis Magazine

Surrounded by a pristine emerald sea and within a national park, it’s hard to beat ANA InterContinental Manza Beach Resort when it comes to finding the perfect vacation spot in Okinawa. An unforgettable experience, the resort sits right beside the sands of Manza Beach, boasts a wide range of dining options and offers guests an unrivaled range of activities and facilities. 

An unbeatable range of marine, beach and adventure activities


The famous Manza Ocean Park® is Japan’s largest inflatable water park.

From snorkeling to sea kayaking, spa facilities and much more, there’s something for everyone at ANA InterContinental Manza Beach Resort. Popular family-friendly activities include exploring the marine world in the resort’s resident Submarine Jr. II, stand up paddle boarding and Japan’s largest inflated water park, Manza Ocean Park®. The water park is a must-do in Okinawa for kids and adults alike, and features floating trampolines, monkey bars, climbing walls and slides. 

For the more adventurous, head out further onto the water and try parasailing, the Dragon Boat, wake board and jet skiing.

Relaxing in the sunset 


Enjoy stunning sunset views across the Pacific Ocean with the Sunset Cruise.

If your idea of vacation includes relaxing and pampering rather than thrill-seeking, ANA InterContinental Manza Beach Resort is ready for you too. Start your day off by joining the relaxing sunset yoga classes on the beach with SUP yoga, then spend the day indulging in the spa and wellness facilities’ services, or lounge in the sun besides the resort’s pools, named the Garden Pool and Beach Pool.  

As evening draws near, treat yourself at one of the resort’s many restaurants, or let the resort’s Sunset Cruise whisk you away and watch the breathtaking twilight views across the calm waters. 

Diving with the corals


Since 2005, the resort has been working hard to conserve coral by engaging in coral-friendly activities including the extermination of enemy of coral, underwater cleaning and planting coral seedlings.

It’s no surprise that the bay is Okinawa’s leading diving spot. Dive below the glistening horizon and you’ll be met by a vibrant coral reef. It’s quite a rarity for an Okinawan resort to be located so close to such a stunning natural wonder. If you don’t have a diving license, you can still enjoy the colorful coral and tropical fish by joining the Submarine Jr. II tour or taking part in the resort’s underwater seawalk activity.
