#1 of 13 in Nature in Miyakojima

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. Plan a trip to Miyakojima easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

    Went to see shimojishima airport 17 end. Come once had come out several times in the TV is, you want to make. It is nice we above all clear cobalt blue sea. In addition, the peaceful atmosphere on the island fills the air. Distance from Miyako Island of Irabu bridge is recommended.

    Can circle around the airfield. Is dotted with beaches to snorkel in the car also. You could see the fish. Snorkeling from the boat, see kibinagotlenerd, Flock or changes in wall and clean.

    In Miyako is really pretty, but this is exceptional. A true natural beauty, and runway ahead of Embankment Road is another unlikely Japan eyes inclined to doubt. There was snorkeling in landing exercises. Lucky! I thought that would have international destinations. Change this landscape as well as practice and arrives from many Asian countries, I wonder. And to be concerned about. For the time being, is now calm. This is a super spot across the bridge and within easy reach.
