  • Beautiful walk along the coral-strewn sand. Snorkeling was incredible, with blue coral, different species of fish, clean restroom and a shower facility!  more »
  • At a point near the coast of SAP & was snorkeling. From 9 o'clock was about 10000 Yen at 12:00 (on check, please!, Ishigaki Island eco-tours was that all the nodes. Is there any other. ) I'm suddenly face-to-face with the Guide quite tense, as email is very good, whats the whiskies. Lucky in gentle waves that day, no wind, it was sunny. Water clarity is also high, "are lucky today" and it was. Go off at the SPA, there's snorkelling. You could easily go off, rowing standing is quite difficult, but we advising "sitting down rowing is OK.". Instructor familiar with point I was everywhere in the "I have! "That much was a flock of tropical fish. It is stretched the world ever saw. More impressed by time was that during the past. I want to go take a look at.
