Kuri-jima Island, Miyakojima

(4.5/5 based on 220+ 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. Arrange your visit to Kuri-jima Island and discover more family-friendly attractions in Miyakojima using our Miyakojima itinerary planner.

  • On the South Island, laid-back island. There are a number of cafés and rustic feel is on the coast! Sand happens to be in the sugar cane harvest beside the vineyard track was full, but the person is not, was not slowly watching the sea. You want to go there again ~

  • Miyako and Irabu, Ikema Island, but the island was beautiful! In the beauty and clarity of the sea, without lots of tourists, was really nice.

  • To watch the sunset at the end of the Miyako Island drive stopped by. Sugar cane fields over ocean and sunset was very beautiful. And the gunegune path in the sugar cane fields are lost along the way, but that survival game with it and enjoyed. Hurry because without street lights as the sun sets around was to dark, I went back (laughs)
