  • Kayak, went to the entrance, swim into the cave. Wearing a life jacket, although it is pretty wild. Climb the ladder propped against the Guide and amazing caves. Hesitation or good walk to the back. After jumping from the top of the pumpkin. Not only the time of low tide but must be booked in advance.

  • Take a tour, go kayaking. Note that pace by those who end up exhausted at this point. Also slipped inside the cave is steep feet than you think, so does not fall, please be careful. The measures go to the contacts because poor people are more dangerous. Since limits in the eye. Because along the way, such as diving, good at high altitude, it is a high hurdle to swim at all afraid of people. Remember to leave without saving such a valuable cultural and geographical location is in no doubt that the extraordinary experience, but if anything, the challenges of. To the future of the Miyako Island, thought not would became famous.
