Hatenohama, Kumejima-cho

(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Went to the end of January, but Sandy is hardly of tourists, was the feeling of the exclusive Beach. Colors of the sea was beautiful. Tip of the glass-bottomed boat ship directly, let arrived on the coast, we get on and off. Soak in the water a little bit, so trousers outfits such as raised is good. Lent when the flip flops take the boat.

  • From East to West about 1 km of white sand beach. Fish swim among the coral from the boat on the way and enjoyed the rest of sea turtles. Was a beautiful beach but stood out a bit of flotsam and Jetsam.
