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.

  • At the end of October around Halloween Kume-jima Island's appearance at the end of the summer. The wind is cool, but I hot sunshine, warm water. From the water temperature is warm up delayed by two months or early spring is cold and I heard? 9:30 "Kume Island Sea leisure, a courtesy car to hotel to come and pay at the port of 3,500 yen (life jacket rental included) in a glass-bottomed boat leaving at 10 am. After about 30 minutes the beach end"arrived. Home, saying ship comes to pick me up 12:30. Luggage roof of the beach and laid the sheets to put to sea. Warden's? The "ban the buoy out and swim" was. Reflecting surface of the sea, but I can see only the shadow is marine tropical fish swarmed. I entered in the Aquarium. Bottom is made of coral sand, transparent water, was like a virtual reality video. Fu was sold in fish feed 100 yen in Kume Island Hotels, and bit the hand less lespedeza yellow face. Without food in the shallow rocks, a lot of fish so water shoes and water glasses are required. "Bait" and am also picking up sea shells, fish is swarming come because I'm afraid. About drawing swill; Sea turtle, swimming from a glass-bottomed boat hull driving back veteran captain's one and three turtles resting on the coral reefs and the sea anemone and clownfish hiding a couple saw. 1:30 was sent to a hotel. In good weather was beautiful like heaven. Have a world more beautiful now. But may be I do not know. Blown off the daily "come not-" I would think. It may be recommended to reset the life.
