Central Sango Batake – Coral Farm

Places in central Okinawa

Place Details

Sango Batake is a small but wonderful place. Its mission is to replant and repair coral into the surrounding sea and also to educate on the environmental difficulties that coral habitats face. Adults pay a fee to enter but children are free. On display is the coral farm where young coral is nurtured before transplanting into the surrounding reefs. There also are some fish tanks and turtles which can be fed. However, the main attraction is the efforts to regrow and restore the coral reefs. Sango Batake is not very large, so the entire visit may take only 30 minutes, but it is very close to Yomitan Gala (to combine with other activities).

Nice stop over
Pros
  • something different to see
Cons
  • relatively small
Sango Batake is a nice stopover while you are in the area, maybe checking out Yomitan Gala or one of the other things nearby. It would probably take you about 30 minutes to walk through there and the nice jetty out front. The folks that run it seem very committed, and I support their mission of restoring coral reefs. It is also something different to see and actually learn something about the situation of the coral surrounding Okinawa.

Please note that during the coronavirus, they have closed the facility to visitors. So it would be good to call ahead to make sure they are open if you want to stop by.
