Rent a bicycle to explore Shimoji-jima Island, connected to the much bigger Irabu Island by a complex bridge system with a total length of 3,540 m (11,614 ft). With turquoise and azure shades of water, the island stands out as a famous diving and snorkeling spot. Part of Irabu National Park, its 7,000 inhabitants cultivate sugar cane and fish. You can swim, cycle, stroll, or fish, enjoying pristine nature and shades of blue. Keep an eye out for skipjack tuna fish, which make frequent visits to these waters. For airplane spotting, visit the island's international airport.

  • Relatively small island adjacent to Irabu. Street, pond, but still recommended RW17 end. Often cited on the pier towards the sea stretched, looked at every you want to view. Beneath the tetrapod piers near the beach in a small space, great blue. Where to bathe in the sea is not so at your own risk.

  • Shimojishima Airport next to the road, around the airport island and goes to the Beach District of Sawada. The staff of the sea on the other side of the road. Color is beautiful. Shades of the sea Miyako Island's premier, as Word of mouth be? Little car parked on the side of the road because there is no parking, I came to coach.
