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.

  • I think and with cafes and shops are scattered throughout the island, but not far from the entrance, where you can enjoy women's island. During their visit I went to kurima Island twice. Very beautiful beach views from the bridge.

  • Elevated reef flat is nearly circular island. So are the roads of the island coastline stretches sugarcane fields beside the road on the island. Photo is the view-> Miyako-jima from Ishigaki to Ryukyu air commuter. For the low-altitude + low-speed looked good.
