Chirihama coast which length is about 8km is located west side of the base of Noto Peninsula, Hodatsushimizu Town, and Hakui City, Ishikawa Prefecture. This beach is famous for the only beach where all kind of vehicles such as cars, buses, motorbikes, bicycle can run on the beachside in Japan. This is called “Chirihama Nagisa Driveway”.

千里浜海岸の砂は通常の砂よりも細かく粒の揃った砂なので、水分を吸収すると固く締まる性質があって、自動車が砂浜に沈むことなく走ることができます。

Because the sand on Chirihama coast is even and smaller than the usual so when it absorbs water it will firmly tightened and automobile can run without sinking on the beach. However, even at such Chirihama beach, at the seaside with too much water and land side with less water, you won’t be able to ride vehicles because those sands flow easily and vehicles sink easily.

千里浜なぎさドライブウェイは、混雑する海水浴シーズンには交通規制がかかって、砂浜に道路標識が設置されます。

You can also swim in Chirihama beach in summer. The shallow beach will be full of tourists who enjoy swimming. The traffic will be controlled in the crowded swimming season in Chirihama Nagisa Driveway, and road signs set up on the beach.

千里浜海岸の通行は無料で24時間いつでも走ることができますが、波が高い時や冬の期間は交通規制や閉鎖されることがあります。

You can run along the beach at no charge for 24 hours, but traffic regulations and closing may be done during winter and when the waves are high.

千里浜なぎさドライブウェイを走りながら眺める日本海に沈む夕日は絶景です。

The sunset in the Sea of Japan while driving “Chirihama Nagisa Driveway” is magnificent, so this is also the place recommended to visit the evening twilight time.

毎年4月から10月にかけて千里浜なぎさドライブウェイの北側の終点で砂の彫刻(砂像)を製作しています。

From April to October every year, people make sand sculptures at the end of the north side of “Chirihama Nagisa Driveway”. You can see the process of finishing sculpture by removing sand from big lump little by little.
