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.

  • Notable acts such as is the great sea, in recent years, coral and littering tourists tread. Seen the beautiful underwater snorkeling so we recommend do not want them in the person cannot remember'd, my feet in coral. See the coral is stepped on, folded and ravaged beaten very frustrating. Have a devout nature intrude into getting that feeling and challenge is the ocean.

  • It is about a year ago. Going to the port without a reservation and was waiting. But don't give up. There is opportunity to safely in the waiting. Views on Hateruma Island, for the first time with good weather we saw. Just shameful that place is the best!
