    A walk than swim all smaller island ferry near the beach can be reached in less than 15 minutes. So shallow is a beautiful good children, but a little unsatisfactory to adults? You can also snorkel in recent warming quite dead coral. I think sports is better if you want to be beautiful in the sea. Take the day before or on the summer morning ferry reservations not so nice.

    I went to 7/2017. This is the second time. From toguchi port different no color of the sea in just 15 minutes by ferry. The beach, in front of white sand mixed with fragments of coral sand is. Crowded compared to previously, was tossing around Korea, is popular with travelers inbound, I went. Still, is a beautiful sea and Okinawa main island like yours.

Where to stay in Motobu-cho

Most visitors to Motobu-cho opt to spend their time by the sea, so accommodations have positioned themselves accordingly. Choose from a number of beachfront hotels, resorts, and guesthouses located close to the aquarium and botanical garden, and on Sesoko Island. By the harbor in the main urban area, a few homestays and guesthouses dot the largely residential part of town. As a general rule, urban areas farther inland offer more budget-friendly rooms, whereas lodgings in non-urban areas farther inland tend to be pricier retreats making the most of the scenery and seclusion.
