Kouri Island, Miyakojima

4.4
#3 of 13 in Nature in Miyakojima
The small islet of Kouri Island offers peaceful beaches, quaint eateries, and great snorkeling. The island is so small you can easily traverse it on foot, but consider hiring a bicycle from the "mainland" and heading across the bridge for full autonomy. Bordered by white sand beaches and a crystal clear ocean, the island provides perfect conditions for snorkeling and observing the marine life around the unusual rock formations. You can choose from a couple of reputable restaurants serving up local dishes, though the beaches make very picturesque picnic spots. Bear in mind that many of the island's beaches remain quiet and unspoiled, with little in the way of amenities, so bring along some water and snacks to keep you going.

  •  Rent a car in near the airport first went in the beginning is kurima island. Kurima Island, was impressed by the beauty of the blue gradient of the sea on both sides of the bridge.  Went to the Dragon Palace Castle Lookout, but narrow road is little friendliness. Was lined with cafés until the Dragon Palace Castle lookout listed in the Guidebook.

  • It is a bridge overlooking the beaches of niihama. Island is very peaceful, there's something that is not, as driving is recommended. Because the island is so narrow there is attention driving.
