#1 of 406 in Nature in Kyushu-Okinawa
Water Body Nature / Park
Kabira Bay, the most photographed sight on the island, remains noted for its pristine white sands, blue waters, and lush vegetation. Although it's not safe to swim here due to strong currents and the presence of jelly fish, you can enjoy the picturesque vista from land, or take a ride on a glass-bottomed boat to observe the coral reefs and manta rays from the surface of the water. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Kabira Bay by using our Ishigaki vacation trip planner.

  • Compact range of contrast of the sea and sky and sand has been condensed. It's a landscape of coincidences, such as created. Tourists wait leisurely boat and feel what a loose flow of time.

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.
