Osezaki is a long strip of land jutting into the Suruga Bay at the norhern part of the peninsula. Heda is a similar jutting cape located south from Osezaki. These capes are actually sand (gravel) ‘spits’ created by wave action that deposits eroded gravel and rocks onto the seashore. A major attraction of the Osezaki cape is a large group of giant juniper trees. Some of these trees are nearly 1000 years old, and the intricate formation of their branch and trunk systems make this group an extremely valuable part of the heritage of the geopark. This juniper vegetation is certified as a natural landmark.
Mihama Cape in Heda is a larger gravel spit–the calm waters of the bay is popular among tourists. The area is also known for the giant spider crab (the largest crab in the world).
Ita is another smaller gravel spit located nearby.
