Irabu-jima Island, Miyakojima

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Irabu-jima Island and other Miyakojima attractions using our handy Miyakojima vacation generator.

  • Irabu bridge, so from the heart of the Miyako Island within easy reach like now. Because it is a fairly large Island Airport on shimojishima gazebo or beach, and street and pond there are many attractions. Car rental or good spin on the tourist bus, tourist taxi!. I think not the person I saw young people who tour by bicycle, but pretty legs in confidence and tough. It is recommended that you know in advance because there are restaurants on the island, but still fewer.

  • Irabu Island, the sea is really beautiful. Depending on the weather, like change contrast between water and sky and sand every day, will be tried without getting tired. It is also a lot of powdery sand beaches and walking barefoot on really feels good.
