Kabira Bay, Ishigaki

4.3
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.

    You do not need to say. You should visit seemed to do. You can feel the clean sea. Also if you don't dive into the glass boat ride even better, I guess. I'm a glass boat, making the rounds goes deep in the oceans. I've seen them, thanks to the turtle. Also, I'm kind of grunge people a heck of a lot of tourists. English also. If I'm going on a visit to Ishigaki featured.

    Calm, with its clever maneuvering, peace boat is available. But since leaving-I and will keep watching the sea and mild seasickness. Enjoy the coastline and waters of beautiful stone walls until the off-shore.

    We visited during the trip with his wife. Flowed faster swimming ban so that I took a glass-bottomed boat. View from the boat's sea of Okinawa factory! So I think it was cool stuff. We can see sea turtles, small but very clean. When you come to Kabira Bay about to experience. There is also a popular shooting spot so if you climb to the lookout overlooking the Gulf of kawahira.

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.
