The Largest Indoor beach, New Idea for Recreational Place

This time I want to write something "light". I miss to write about traveling place. But this is unique place. I like something weird and unusual. I think we all like going to the beach. The beach is the beautiful place for traveling, vocation or holiday. We can sun bathing, swimming, playing sea sand, surfing, diving and many more activities. Or we can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the beach by reading under the sand accompany with orange juice.

When we usually go the natural beach, this is totally different. This is the largest indoor beach. It placed in a massive dome. I think this is the best design for the indoor beach entire the world. It located 1,500 south of Tokyo in Miyazaki, on Japan’s southernmost Kyushu Island. Which measuring of dome around 300 x 100 meters, using 13,500 tons of salt-free water and 600 tons of polished marble chips. There is an active artificial volcano which smoke every fifteen minutes.

If you like surfing activities, don't worry you can ride the 3,5 meters waves. This is the best artificial waves around the world. It was built with spend the cost around $2 billion for the largest recreational complex including the three-story promenade of shops, tennis courts and golf. This is liked heaven of beach. This is artificial beach which free from salt. There is no predatory sharks, with hygienic and clean of sea sand  and water temperature balanced. I remind you again about the location, It located on Japan's Ocean Dome. In the southernmost Japanese island, exactly in Kyushu Island. 

As we know that Japan is the great country for technology, started from car, electronic equipment , gadget technology and many more. And this time the apply their technology in making the biggest indoor beach and the first in the world. They have high creativity. We can learn from their dedication in built technology and it useful for people.

To get inside in this place we must pay $ 50 for adults and $ 35 for children. with rides running $5-10 more. Add $10 for two hours with a boogie board, or $5 for two hours of inner tube rental. Maybe it look expensive but it paid with the fun and enjoy all the facilities provided. I think we can get a new experience here.

Although I never go to this place. But I am proud to be able to give you information about tourist attractions in the world. I hope it can be an alternative for traveling place. if you visit Japan, do not forget to drop in in this place and enjoy to swim.

Have you ever go to this place? or you have more information about this place, please share with us. Thank you very much and have a nice holiday.

This is amazing, very different and a great subject to write about, Prasetio! However if I am going to go to the beach than I actually want to be outside with the sky as my roof....yet still somehow those pictures do look tempting and inviting!

Good hub, Prasetio!

This is fantastic idea. I think it can be made not only in Japan. But in British also. But it need an expensive cost. But don't worry. you can come this place when you visit to Japan.

Wow! I'd love to go there. It makes so much sense that the roof can open revealing the sky, the sun and fresh air. This is certainly a great way to enjoy leisure without harming the beach and the water - which we have to remember has its own life that we are seriously polluting.

Great hub!

Thank you shazwellyn for coming to this hub. Maybe they want give the people an option, the natural beach or artificial beach inside the massive doom. With a lot of facilities and different in serve, I think many people better choose this place. But the natural beach never change, because of God creation.

I had heard about this place before, on the news, but never gave it any thought. And I must say it is quite fantastic! But I think I agree with Ann Nonymous, I would much prefer the real thing.

Good hub, Prasetio30!

GPAGE 6 years ago from California

prasetio30! WOW! This is amazing!!! Could you imagine if they had more of these in colder climates? Less people would get depressed.....when I lived in the UK and the weather was really bad, I was desperate to see "lighter skies" like the one that I grew up with. At one point I decided to hit a tanning booth (I know, not good for you ; ha) BUT, the 15 minutes in there LIFTED my spirits.....it was the LIGHT.....anyway the next time I wanted better weather, I went to France!

Anyway, enjoyed this hub! Best, G

Wow, like many of the other comments before I'll add that I had never really heard or ever considered the idea of an indoor beach. My initial reaction was that it couldn't be that great just because the atmosphere inside must be totally different. I have to admit, though, after seeing these pictures some of the indoor beaches look absolutely beautiful!


prasetio30 profile image

prasetio30 6 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thanks martycraigs for coming to this hub and share your opinion about this topic.

The first time I know the information about this place is out of my mind. Because artificial things is usually fake. But I directly change my mind. And for me this is amazing work. and totally great because it has the purpose for the people. Have a nice day.

Fantastic! I had heard about the indoor skiing, but had not heard about the indoor beach. The photos look like something out of well-done science fiction movie. If I ever have the good fortune to go to Japan for a visit, I will definitely put aside money to go to the indoor beach. Great hub.

This place is really beautiful! One can go to the beach all year long! I don't know if I will ever make it to Japan, but if I do, I will definitely go to see it. And since I don't have to think about sharks, that alone will up my chances of actually getting in the water. Thank goodness the volcano is artificial! It is artificial, right? LOL!!!!!! Have a great day!!!

prasetio30 6 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Thank you Support Med. for coming to this hub and give comment about this topic. Yes you are right, we can go to this place all year long. And you can go to Japan someday. You don't have to worry about shark, there is no shark at all in the indoor beach. And of course, the volcano also an artificial. I hope you enjoy this day. see you........

OMG...this place is crazy!!! I want to go! Whoever heard of such a thing? We need one where I live where I swear it is winter half the year...wait then I might never get anything done. Do they have wifi? lol How wonderful would it be to sit on the beach and work. (sigh) As I'm looking outside, its cold, rainy and incredibly windy! Thanks for the hub!

Lady_E 6 years ago from London, UK

Absolutely Amazing. No matter how bad the weather is, you could pop along to the indoor beach and with the added benefit of knowing no Sharks will surface.

If I'm in the area, will definitely make it a priority to visit. I hope they build one in Europe soon.

Thanks. Your Hubs are so unique. :)

prasetio30 6 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

thanks theherbivorehippi for visiting this hub and share your opinion about this place.

I agree with you , this place is incredible. Don't worry when the winter comes and the snow covered the land. The roof will closed immediately. And you can still surfing in the indoor place in winter. I think recently many public places equipped by wifi. So don't worry about that. thank you very much.

prasetio30 6 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Of course, this beach not influenced by weather. You can surfing along the beautiful wave in the winter. I hope this hub become inspiration and it built in other place like Europe. I think many people will glad and appreciate that.
