Yonaha Maehama Beach, Miyakojima

4.7
#1 of 551 in Beaches in Japan
Enjoy lounging on Yonaha Maehama Beach, renowned among Okinawa beaches for its vivid turquoise water and soft, powdery sand. Despite its popularity, you’ll usually be able to find a deserted spot somewhere along the silky white beach, which stretches for 7 km (4.3 mi). Enjoy the scenic ocean views and laid-back atmosphere as you sunbathe or swim in the crystal clear waters. The stunning contrast of the pearly white sand and striking blue water provides a great background for photographs.

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.
