2) Seaside Cafe Hanon

Ga1 http://cafe-hanon.com
Hanon in Japanese means the sound of the waves. At Hanon, you can sit at the terrace and watch the ocean while hearing the waves crash onto the shore, what a peaceful experience!
The motto of this resto is "Okinawa meets Hawaii" so they serve all sorts of Hawaiian inspired dishes, pancakes being their specialty! As a die-hard fan of pancakes and of salted caramel, my heart skipped a beat when I saw "salted caramel pancake" on the menu and it didn't disappoint! The pancakes were fluffy and the caramel was just right. Am I in pancake heaven?

3) Cafe Kurukuma

The restaurant has a stunning view as it sits at a height of 130 meters. You can enjoy the ocean view while enjoying your Asian dining. It's a Thai restaurant with an Okinawan touch. The tom yum soup and Thai green curry are really tasty!
You can have drinks on the terrace for an unforgettable experience.
