Ishigaki

Ishigaki, the most populous island in the chain, features the country's southernmost city and acts as a transport hub for exploring the landmasses that surround. The beaches provide the main draw for visitors to the island, while snaking rivers making their way inland reveal a wealth of mangroves and jungle-covered mountains in the interior. The clear waters around the island, and the natural abundance of the coral reef habitat found there, make scuba diving one of the main things to do on Ishigaki. With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Ishigaki and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.

Where to stay in Ishigaki

The greatest abundance of accommodations on Ishigaki sit in the city of the same name. Lining the island's south coast, a number of high-rise hotels and resort-style options provide standard to luxury rooms and additional facilities, including restaurants, spas, and pools. Budget-conscious travelers will want to check out the "minshukus" (hostels with private and dormitory-style rooms), generally located in the city, but on streets further back from the sea. The northern coast of the island has its fair share of accommodations too, following the same rules as the south, but without the same breadth of choice.
