Kuri-jima Island, Miyakojima

(4.5/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Kurima island is surrounded by a beautiful sea, so not something widely Islanders who live peacefully. On the island as well as elementary schools. So as not to disturb the local residents, tourism is what you want.

  • Kurima Island drive is partly done. Clarity of the sea in my voice is out! Views of the sea, from good weather, Irabu bridge than look by far blue sea bridge straight so got to the top of the bridge and kurima island is amazing!! And is a stylish Café and gift shop. A delicious Taco eating blowin' in the wind?! Serving delicious mango, mango is also making. In a quiet fashion space on the small island. It was just dazed and wind will be bathed, so calm down. Personally, misnun beach is quiet and liked. It seems to be a bug payments that tradition takes place. The sunset was beautiful. When I went to Miyako also goes!
