Yabiji, Miyakojima

4.9
#5 of 13 in Nature in Miyakojima
Water Body Nature / Park
Made of over 100 coral reefs near Ikema Island, Yabiji forms the largest coral reef group in Japan and stands out as a true paradise for divers. Curiously, the reef comes to the water's surface a couple of times a year, creating an “illusion land” extending up to 17 km (11 mi). You can tour the area under professional guidance to preserve the wildlife. Snorkeling and scuba diving year-round gives you an opportunity to observe an astonishing number of colorful fish, sea turtles, coral snakes, manta rays, tuna, and small sharks enjoying this “flower garden of the ocean,” as locals affectionately call it. Put Yabiji and other Miyakojima attractions into our Miyakojima travel itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Introduced slightly seen Yabiji, but when I see beyond imagination. Station can be seen on the boat about 10 meters of the sea, large areas of coral, fish, sea turtles, sharks ... ... Feels like an inexhaustible treasure. Very handsome master Kento with our day trips are great, every day fresh view, Super moments out of enjoying the sea breeze blowing. Dive now planned for August to find them ... ... So miss the sea!

Where to stay in Miyakojima

Most of the accommodations in Miyakojima cluster around the main harbor. Here, a good number of high-rise hotels sit in the most densely populated areas, around plazas, shopping malls, and parks, while resorts take over a little farther around the coast in both directions, offering a range of facilities including pools, spas, and private beaches. You'll find simple guesthouses on all of the islands of modern Miyakojima city, with the greatest number on the main island, either on the urban side streets or close to the main beaches.
