Adjacent to Beppu Kanko International Port, Beppu Beach Sand Bath along the shoreline is where you bathe in geothermal sand while being buried in sand for about 10 to 15 minutes. Wash the sand off in a separate gender-appropriate tub, and douse yourself in another separate hot tub for maximum relaxation.
The sand bath is big enough for a group of 10 individuals. The bath area is covered with a roof for various weather. It also offers beach umbrellas for sun block.
Takegawara Onsen offers a sand bath as well.
