“Impressive coral farm just a few steps from Gala...”
Review of Sango Batake

Sango Batake
Reviewed 18 August 2017

Buy your tickets near the Gala sea salt shop and walk down towards the water to find a hidden jewel of a stop. Sango Batake is part of an effort to re-energize the dying coral reefs that surround Okinawa- reefs that have been damaged by greatly by tourists.

You can get a peak at some of the local marine life that call the coral reefs their home and if you time your visit just right you may get to help plant some corral or view sea turtle hatchlings!

We usually spend about an hour here with the kids. It's fairly inexpensive and a nice way to round out a trip to Gala. Free parking, restrooms, and food are located at Gala. I wouldn't recommend this on a rainy day as its outside. If you choose to go after the rain, wear shoes with decent grip that you won't mind getting wet.

What makes this place special is the meaning behind this farm. From what I understood many of the local coral are disappearing so a local with his own funds created a coral farm to replant in the local area. It was very interesting to see how coral is grown and the length of time is needed.

I would say this is a tourist trap but others may like it. The entrance fee is expansive. If you enjoy nature, then avoid those tourist oriented privately operated attraction.
