Hatenohama, Kumejima-cho

4.5
#1 of 40 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.

  • I think most tourist attractions of Kume-jima Island. Depending on the weather, but a beautiful cobalt blue waters, white sand beaches, blue sky (only it's real. ^ _ ^) You can enjoy. Hotels on the island, from the OU Island Board anchorage the Board to have a shuttle to the beach, half-day course 3500 Yen / person is. And rent umbrellas and sunbeds at 3,000 yen / 2 (hope discount to 2,000 yen from weather conditions. ) Did. It is better to spend some time is about an hour and a half, and was. Also, drinks can be purchased on the site. Of course is not. Orion beer in 350 ml 600 yen, Aquarius was 300 yen. It is well, probably not. Anyway, enjoy the views and the swimming lightly, after a restful night's sleep (bring a lunch, and eat good too), and quickly and was in two and half hours.

  • Anyway awesome UV! Than I thought, and then worked perfectly in overcast but little snorkel the Sea face was wearing a middle repainted several times along the way, but burned only will. I'm from it's cloudy in the spring, if Recalling the summer! (Lol) ever went there three times, but this time most dull was the weather. Go apply for a tour, but stay in happening weather forecast. Unfortunately. Sign up on a sunny day the most beautiful, I believe. Even the current one was trash.
