Irabu-jima Island, Miyakojima

4.5
#2 of 13 in Nature in Miyakojima
Island Nature / Park
Once isolated, today Irabu-jima Island exudes a laid-back, island lifestyle with quiet, paradisiacal beaches and unspoiled coral reefs. With hundreds of scuba diving spots, you'll have innumerable chances to explore the diverse underwater environments of the island, from shallow, boulder-laden sandy bays, to subaqueous limestone crevasses and caves--used as breeding grounds by a legion of colorful fish. The island's compact size makes exploring it rather easy: getting from one side to the other will take you about an hour and a half on foot. Alternatively, rent a bicycle from Miyako-jima, linked here by a handsome road bridge.

  • The Institute could not come only by boat until Irabu Ohashi had opened in the year 2015. Greets you defend the land. Will become bad in real life is very good tourist attractions and beautiful beaches, where to go, go. It is one of the places you want to stay longer.

  • It is Irabu bridge seen from Irabu Island, Makiyama Observatory. The bridge is mostly posed and the colors of the sea. It is a nice landscape. Shimojishima airport side road opposite the ocean clean. Color is beautiful.

  • Went on their own in a rental car, but most on the tour have come it seems. Morning about 9 p.m., and still offers free parking, morning comes to the full so be careful. Delicious meals so far limited because small island but had several.

Where to stay in Miyakojima

Most of the accommodations in Miyakojima cluster around the main harbor. Here, a good number of high-rise hotels sit in the most densely populated areas, around plazas, shopping malls, and parks, while resorts take over a little farther around the coast in both directions, offering a range of facilities including pools, spas, and private beaches. You'll find simple guesthouses on all of the islands of modern Miyakojima city, with the greatest number on the main island, either on the urban side streets or close to the main beaches.
