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.

  • This beach is not! When you come on Hateruma Island, always come here!! Not familiar with Guam and other resorts? I mean not what both dressing rooms and showers. However, the sea is really great. All around the world, but I like this beautiful beach is in addition to it is. If you go to at Hateruma island must go. I can rent a bike, motorbike and two people ride bikes more featured!

  • the nishihama beach on hateruma is, without question, the most beautiful beach of yaeyama Islands. end of March yet very few tourists are in place. so to the back Beach section alone (just times up to the stones in the water run). from ishigaki currently 3 ferries per day to hateruma (about 6000 yen return). on hateruma there are various bicycle hire, some accommodation and restaurants, and a small airport. a day trip as well as 3-4 days are highly recommended for the small island.

  • 地點就在波照間島碼頭旁,大約走5-10分鍾 水清沙幼 可以遠望對岸的西表島(可能有1小時船程的距離) 海水因為水深不同而出現藍綠變化交錯的景色 水好淺,可以輕鬆游水 岸邊有借用浮潛用品的店舖 可以看到水中有大量不同種類的魚以及七彩珊瑚 絕對值得一遊 本地遊客好多但外國遊客近於絕跡  more »
