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.

  • It is nice to kids, so there is a lot of sand!. To stay 1 day snorkeling, so you would not get bored.

  • There are a lot of fish from the beach away. It is just good because almost no waves in the rock in the shallow, child's play. Snorkeling is also fun time and played. In the coral sand star sand.

  • Coast at the entrance kiosk, ice cream and snacks. How to buy souvenirs of Iriomote Island, because there are a lot of souvenirs should drop by.
