Hatenohama, Kumejima-cho

(260+ reviews on the web)
Island
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. Put Hatenohama and other Kumejima-cho attractions into our Kumejima-cho itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It was happy, dopey looking at Sea alone. At the end of March, sometimes sunny cloudy but quite Tan. Than summer sun protection is required. Do not use the tour to get here and the speed boat or glass-bottomed boat, or time and departure time is apart of the after.

  • It is an uninhabited island across the ship. On one side of white sand and coral, no nothing. Coral and shells, I picked up the play. In a glass-bottomed boat over to the island, in the sea coral and fish can be enjoyed.
