Hoshisuna Beach, Iriomote-jima

3.5
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Iriomote-jima
Famous for its sands made of billions of tiny dead starfish, Hoshisuna Beach features a number of reefs and curious offshore rock formations covered with greener. Forming a half-closed bay with a micro climate, the beach offers good swimming and snorkeling opportunities. You can walk in the shallows and puddles during low tide, or rent snorkeling equipment at a facility right across the beach and wait for high tide. Huge differences in tide leave large pools filled with vivid marine life. You can dine in a nice restaurant nearby and the beach, some 10-15 minutes by car from Uehara, has toilet facilities.

  • Is a famous beach in the hereafter is as the name implies, the House is visited to snorkeling than star sand. Swimming pool surrounded by rocks and looks like without the wave, easy-to-play. Also, would so many fish and coral snorkeling for beginners and small children is best. Think to play nice, and climb the stairs from the beach restaurants and toilets are the best beach. Incidentally, I visited when Star sand hawann, had. So after the Typhoon? Well, I don't know.

  • Also determine much from the sea I'd like the moment I saw the sea and the beach, the beach at Pasha Pasha to. This overseas has enough charm are invited into the sea. Do not worry be washed away in the gentle waves. That blue and yellow fish swimming without water glasses. From a small big one is at least 40 cm until something like that come swimming in shallow water. Even with my husband cannot swim so was in the sea for a long time, for the first time? So say two crazy, watching a variety of fish. Of course also ideal for swimming. Kind of algae, such as would say if you don't mind even that sometimes is the best place for outstanding transparency's.

  • Whether or not there is Star sand seems to be depending on the season. Could not find the grain when we visited. It was thought some more major tourist attraction, but nobody in the quiet, small coast.
