Hatenohama, Kumejima-cho

4.5
#1 of 37 in Outdoors in Shimajiri-gun
Island Beach Must See
Reset yourself with bright, white sand and clear blue water at Hatenohama on Kume Island. Accessible only through a glass-bottom boat tour, the 7 km long (4.3 mi) stretch of sand makes this beach a popular outing spot, where you can both swim and snorkel. See some of the exquisite shells and tropical fish, or take snorkeling and diving lessons with expert instructors. A huge area of pristine shallow water sheltered by coral reefs and funky rock formations offers excellent diving opportunities, and you'll see local fishermen looking for a catch further out from the shore. Bring water with you and go to the toilet beforehand, as the beach offers few amenities. Find out how to plan Kumejima-cho trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Coral 果teshi無i as follows not only by boat across the sand. In the tour and landed on the beach in the foreground. No grass is the one truth I white dunes and sand is like sand in an hourglass. It is best to visit aiming at the chance because it was autumn sun. It is a sandy beach in just under the cloudy sky. Little waves on the sun appeared around the bright blue sea, celebrates the inspirational temporary time. And around long beach, about 1 hour and a half walk. Food on the coast attract full and throw a loaf of bread and a lot of fish. There is one toilet broken, doors not close completely, so to them to hold the door keep asked.

  • The beach of consisting of a coral reef. Crystal clear emerald green sea and white sandy beaches. Scenes were cut from the painting. Where to go whenever you are in Kume-jima Island. EEF Beach accessible by boat. Round trip +1 time walking tour at 3,500 yen. Hotel room. Collection from about 3 hours total dissolution. Able to walk slowly, satisfied. Turtles during the transfer by boat. Lucky. That 11-visit is snorkeling and diving is doing throughout the year. You want to dive into the waters of this next time.

Where to stay in Kumejima-cho

The main places to stay in Kumejima-cho lie on the main island of the same name. Lots of visitors opt for Eef Beach, a picturesque white sand spot and perhaps the most developed on the island; here, choose from luxury resorts, the occasional guesthouse, and some more standard, low-rise hotels. Another urban area to the west has a few pretty modest offerings, including simple hotels and family-run guesthouses. Travel throughout the island is easy, so you can head to remoter beaches when the mood strikes.
