Nishihama Beach, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho

(4.9/5 based on 280+ 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.

  •  Even many flight cancellations, go hard and is quite likely to travel to the schedule. It is also rough high waves on the high seas so that God is not. I thought sickness is required, some prepared and ready should refrain from diet, etc before getting on the boat.  In fact significant wave, shake tight at the time to chose this island in what would or did regret "absolute 2 times not.". Nithi Beach's Okinawa for the first time, for the first time at Hateruma, and beaches at Okinawa for the first time. When I saw the sea seemed to last right curve, the front, walked towards the nithi Beach and the beach I'm sure you think should be! You could come.

  • Was our family were swimming in December, under the sea, warm, she first tried to snorkel swim with sea turtles, was thrilled. There may be people dislike the smell of the sugar cane mills.
