Misaki harbour, on the north coast of the island, is home to cargo boats, fishing boats and small ferries. The harbour also includes houses, souvenir shops, restaurants and hotels. Jōgashima lighthouse stands on the western edge of the north coast. The south coast of the island faces the Pacific Ocean and is more natural. Jōgashima park covers the eastern half of the south coast. Through the park threading east, you can get to Awazaki. To the west, you can get to Akabanezaki (a promontory) with a small beach. Cliffs stand between Awazaki and the beach. At Akabanazaki there is a natural rock arch called Umanosedoumon.
