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.
