Nishihama Beach, Hateruma-jima Taketomi-cho

4.9
#1 of 7 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.

  • Hardly visit clouds at the beginning of March, was the sunny beaches and able to savor in Hateruma blue through most tetrapod people think here just looking for Japan in such a beautiful sea

  • Hateruma Island, not much of that here is a must-see. Different colors of the sea. Inspiring stuff. However, do not know what work around is under construction. Unfortunately one thing is erupting with smoke, next to a sugar mill.
