Irabu-jima Island, Miyakojima

4.4
#2 of 13 in Nature in Miyakojima
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.

  • Irabu is visited on the drive. To snorkel if Irabu should spot many to felt. I think it is very so in narrow streets in tourist rental filled 17 end of the Park. Stay calm if you spend from Miyako Island take lodging in Irabu-Jima is so good. If playing Miyako Island, relax if Irabu?--now want to stay from Irabu Island, 1 week is thought.

  • If it's sunny, blue skies and shoals of blue waters and white sandy beaches are stunning island! roughly where to look at the sea really is beautiful. However frustrating sometimes call in both last year and this year's photo shoot-(> _

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.
