Nishihama Beach, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho
(4.9/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Clean white sand and the rock-studded sea bed, visible through azure water, make Nishihama Beach the most natural beach on Hateruma Island. An hour away by boat from Ishigaki Island, this 1 km (0.6 mi) stretch of dry white sand and emerald-green water makes the perfect spot for a barefoot walk. You can enjoy the sparkling sea both by snorkeling and swimming. The beach offers showers and vending machines with drinks, but you should bring some food along, as you won't find any restaurants at the beach. You can rent a bike at the port to cycle here, or take a 10-minute walk from Hateruma Port.

  • Hateruma Island, said only people called go. You could go on Hateruma Island, barely third. The weather was cloudy, but still unsurpassed is the clean sea. It's really pretty.

  • This is as far as I know the most beautiful beach. That was for a long time at Hateruma, coral was reduced. If you go to offshore, this time yellow corals and little purple found. We recommend that you be sent to the boundary line of dark blue and light blue! I think you don't swim, or people who have fear where the southernmost suspension located in front of anemone's marine goods rental will, so renting a life jacket! We also met sea turtle. Ago 懐kkoku came close to, but offhand I feel. Island uncle-in because many people told the visitors increased the force was fear too much or. Was previously almost no foreigner is South Korean, Taiwan, Chinese, Thailand, Germany and various people I met. Usually standing on the coral and various manners will be like. People also good manners but I... In that sense I was seeing. Taketomi increased also, but it's not enough, more restaurants, gradually tourist destinations are used, so for foreigners, notes in a big way but I think I have not presented do not break the landscape!. That indeed may be needed in Japan.
