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.

  • Watching the stars, and take the travelers came many times to the Miyako-jima. Miyako Island connected by bridge to the central islands of the starry sky of the kurima island was beautiful. Star is not good because the dazzling lights of the Tokyu resort on the north side, seen from the road on the South side of sugar cane and tobacco fields is the best. I noticed that you are accustomed to the darkness of the sky of Miyako Island in the sky is bright and dazzling. Resort is also the middle of the night and lit lighting glare, cluttering up the long-awaited Clean Sky. Kurima island in that sense the last sky was dark. However, the huge resorts are being built on the wake side. Are close to the beautiful starry sky in kurima Island day.

  • 來間島上像是世外桃源,大多被蔗田覆蓋,但接近大橋邊有幾間CAFE和餐廳氣氛不錯,應該是給遊客用餐所蓋的,搭車從外面看起來好像不錯。 
  • Watch from kurima Island, also a lovely sea and sky views. Maehama Beach, in contrast, is an indescribable sight. Photos are taken from the Dragon Palace.
