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.

    Anyway it is a beautiful beach. Hateruma blue shining sunlight falls on the surface of the sea, and is dazzling. Parking is a grassy place. Rental shop and the black sugar ice cream store near the parking lot. Beach near the toilets and foot baths. From the absolute electric assist with please. Hill climb it. See once in a lifetime.

    Getting over rough seas to desire at Hateruma island. By the time many blue? Blue and pure white sand contrast and dazzling beauty too. Sand smooth and soft be barefoot in the water and feel good about. The beach hurts. Overlooking the beautiful blue beach is very soothing. So far, however, listen to local waters today said "still", is really much of do was surprised. But I was satisfied. Anything goes, and worry about the cancellation of the ship is not easy I thought that beach may be worth.

    Check the moon phase to go at Hateruma and go ago or after new moon. It is a common sense at Hateruma Repeater. Airfare also rises the moon back and forth as it is. Go before or after new moon stars, the milky way is best, but also the sea tides and tide Ford, walking to the reef. Let's check the tide times. So full of coral marine footwear is essential. So also outside the reef 2 meters long, in dotted with coral islands is quiet. It is perfect for snorkeling. Water face is unfortunately terrible coral bleaching from last year, and another is the Aquarium. Only bake on the beach, but OK. Changed color of the sea and the low tide, Hateruma blue is more vivid.
