Just 300 meters from a natural beach, the Japanese have built a beautiful artificial beach. Imagine a beach with the sky that’s always blue, the temperature stable for 365 days a year without storms that ruin your weekend, no pollution, no pesky jellyfish.
It lies on the Pacific island of Kyushu and is called Seagaia Ocean Dome. It is, if I remember correctly, the only indoor beach in the world. However, it is no longer open to the public.
Paying about 35 euros, you can enjoy the beach. The surface of the beach itself is about 300 meters by 50 meters wide on average. There is always summer with an average temperature of 30 degrees and the water is maintained at about at an enviable 28 degrees.
The constant temperature, humidity and wind were constant and guaranteed perfect conditions for surfing. There are also small but perfect waves. All under the gaze of an “authentic” volcano.
In 2007, it closed its doors for a deep structural and economic restructuring as operating costs were enormous.
