Nishihama Beach, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho

4.9
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho
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.

  • That enters the sea in very warm weather permitting, went to the new year! Some people at least was very comfortable. I think hermit crabs and happy children.

  • In the beautiful sea as you can see in the photo at the end of 11 months went into sea. Better than salt water when I feel cold. Flush with fresh water if we had water, wash the feet much,.

  • In bad weather, Hateruma headed. Nithi Beach Beach is meant is Ishigaki Island sailings during heavy rain. But the rain stopped at Hateruma on arrival. When I arrived on the nithi Beach Beach breaks in the hot sunshine.
