Located in the northeast of Nakanoshima Island, the Akiya Coast boasts steep, red cliffs that create a beautiful contrast with the cobalt blue seawater. There are numerous islets and rock formations along the shore. Volcanic activities from around 2.8 million years ago created these dazzling red cliffs, which are composed of scoria, a porous volcanic rock, and other volcanic materials. The large rock with a heart-shaped hole located by the coast is a popular destination for couples. A nearby campsite allows visitors to watch leisurely as the ferries and hydrofoil cruise by.
