Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web
The small islet of Kuri-jima 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.

  • Observatory with several cafes, the island is basically nothing. I think best place to feel old-fashioned in Okinawa.

  • Small island so soon will be ready around. Okunishi, North Island of 長間 beach is famous for it, but there, went to the West side South of Nagasaki beach. Not only parent-child pairs 1 to others of us, it was really quiet. Is the best location to relax overlooking the sea. Nagasaki Beach and 長間 beach during another in katakana name Beach and will close about two beach there. How to quickly go in the car, so a lively place, not a quiet is recommended island.
