Take a walk out above the water on Nishi Pier for an impressive view of the shoreline and sea. The simple strip of concrete leading out from a remote beach blends in with the landscape, allowing the scenery to speak for itself. Walking out a few yards into the sea offers sights of different aquatic life at the edge of the pier, including sea cucumbers, shrimp, fish, crabs, and eels. With no facilities or businesses nearby, the pier remains a quiet place of relaxation and reflection in nature.
