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.

  • I was gone from the Miyako-jima Island? Asked if, without hesitation, say Irabu. It was that recommended, the Pier also moved from the bridge and around shimojishima Airport Road, sea, mysterious streets, beach pond, Sawada was selected Japan's beautiful beaches, one bear staring at you want to view. Or come to island.

  • Makiyama Observatory including Irabu bridge panoramic. Miyako-jima Island from the beginning up to Ikema Island, 栗間 island views of Miyako. Views from the heights of the fnausagivanata Lookout and its vicinity is the hidden spots. You can see from the high sea turtles swimming. Blue this is beautiful enough to impress anyway. Dadukou beaches are sandy is impressive. Sawata Beach's Mystic rock strewn. Anyway we have a bridge now across the car at only around the waste. It is a lot of beautiful places that represent the Miyako.
