Detailed Review   
Sunset Beach is an artificial, man-made beach placed just a short stroll past/behind Mihama American Village.  Plenty of places to relax on the sand or up in the shade of a pavilion.  As you can guess from the name of the beach, this is a spectacular spot to watch the sun go down.  Seawall alongside provides a decent walk, though it ends pretty quickly. 

The water is very shallow and super calm - perfect for a quick dip to get your feet wet and very safe for the little ones.  Not a ton of sand here nor adjoining park (like you will find at nearby Araha beach and Pirateship Park and you will not find the crazy, intense aqua blue waters of Torii Beach, but it is still fun, convenient, and a great spot to catch a sunset sometime.
