  • From the main island of Okinawa, and easy-to-fly plane there. Blue sea, white beach, clean. All in all good people here who can help you become very supportive and helped me. Staff are very friendly. It is possible that enters the sea to warm even in winter (sweat is required).

  • I found so far in 3 nights 4 days stay in Kume-jima Island, visits back and forth, turned on the image to watch a lot of things. It is time spent not ugly hotel, daily shuttle to enjoy culture and nature. Lack of time, I came to the island for purposes other than the activity of the sea. I want to visit or, you feel you want to know the nature, history, culture, gastronomy and more.

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.
