Yoshino Coast, Miyakojima

Outdoor Activity
For the chance to see abundant colorful corals and tropical fish, including the iconic clownfish, take your snorkel to the shallows of Yoshino Coast. Unusual in that the coral reef extends right from the tide line, you don't need to be an experienced swimmer to see the area's diverse marine life. In fact, you can simply float on the surface of the crystal clear waters and admire the view. Though the reefs here are certainly a snorklers' paradise, the beach itself is just as picturesque, replete with white sands and lush verdant plant life. Don't forget to bring a beach towel, some water, snacks, and a book to read while you soak up the sun. Due to the exposed nature of the corals here, take care not to touch or disrupt the formations while exploring. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Miyakojima holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yoshino Coast and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Where to stay in Miyakojima
