Kabira Bay, Ishigaki

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.
