Located 30 minutes away from the busy streets of Naha, Chatan town has lots to offer in the way of accommodation. Getting out of the city and into the beach-side way of life is what Okinawa is all about. Staying close to our shop minimizes transit time to and from your hotel (approx 1 hr to Naha during rush hour). Also, staying close to our shop allows us to give better service to our divers, be it logging dives, an extra night dive, servicing gear, checking out the day's photos, or just kicking back at the shop, we are just a stone throw away. Check out the list and websites to see which accommodation suits you best. We can help out with any questions or making reservations.
