Sunayama Beach, Miyakojima

4.3
#2 of 549 in Beaches in Japan
At Sunayama Beach, observe the arch-shaped rock formed by centuries of crashing waves cutting a natural gate into the coral wall. The arch has become a symbol for this pristine beach, along with its white powdery sand and emerald green waters. Just 4 km (2.5 mi) away from the main city, the beach serves as a haven for water sport activities, as well as resting and soaking up the sun. Take advantage of some of the world's clearest waters--with 50-60 m (160-195 ft) visibility--by diving in and exploring the various coral species and marine life below the surface.

  • However, it is worth full marks go. Seems to be dangerous and go too far back in the path of the shark or something but rock-hewn? Tunnel? Also recommended is in good shape. I think early is good people without pictures.

  •  Miyako Island round out and to Ikema Island to go around on this day was to drive, then Irabu bridge through the head from Irabu Island, just halfway, sunayama Beach was. Sea completely invisible to the parking lot. Rather than going down towards the sea from the parking lot and climbs. From just saw a beautiful beach below. Rocky Mountain has always appeared on the left, many guidebooks go down the road of sand and cut down to the shore, empty. Across from the rocky beach or rock before the Uptown side Beach, blue gradient was also very beautiful!.

  • I do not intend to come here to swim was put on the car designs. View looking down the Sand Hill climb in the beach, totally invisible in the parking lot to the beach Sandals shoes is kinda tough, but, got to be rewarded. It is a very photogenic scenic area featured.
