  • The color of the sea like cream soda was blue, it was like being in a good cream soda.

  • I went with my five-year-old son and family! I had to decide the time of return when I got on the boat, and even if I went at eight thirty, it was a flight to arrive before nine o'clock, so I bought a return ticket at 13 o'clock where I could eat lunch. Because it was a flight of ichi in the morning, the sea water of Mizunojima beach was transparent, too and it was the highest. Also, my son, who was snorkeling for the first time, was very happy to see a big fish just by diving a little. At first, we planned to snorkel in the morning and then explore the island a little bit, but the kids got addicted to snorkeling more than I imagined, so I still wanted to do it. Because it became, I played in the sea all the time except lunch. My son still wanted to play, so i checked to see if my family could change the time of the return ship, and the group said that it was not possible to change it because the return was buried. I came back by flight at 13 o'clock, but i will buy a late ticket to stay a little longer next time (*^^*) When it comes to the flight after 10 o'clock, the beach becomes considerably crowded, and the cleanliness of water is halved, I recommend going to Mizuno Island by boat in the morning (*^^*)

  • 15 minutes by boat from the main island. It was a very beautiful sea. The beach is also satisfying for the kids, but it was a wonderful coral reef when you went on a snorkeling tour.

  • If paradise exists it's called Minna-jima! This island looks like a croissant and is very easy accessible from Okinawa.
  • great!!
  • Even if you've booked a tour, you can rent a beach chair or snorkeling equipment on site, so you should have at least 4,000 yen in cash per person. Only cold water comes out, but a 100 yen coin is required to use the shower. If you love coral reefs and fish, don't shampoo in the shower on the island, just wash it with water. The fish that used to swim in the immediate vicinity of the beach are disappearing year by year. The clear sea is the first "pool!" The more I ask.

  • This place is really beautiful♥♥ And there are very few foreign tourists. I can't stay too long because of time. If i had the chance, I'd go again. The disadvantage is that no one will Chinese QQ. Fortunately, this time to have a rental translation machine! Pushing a transparent canoe 👍 fun

  • The sea is wonderful and beautiful! I booked a round-trip high-speed boat and snorkel tour. There are not many fish where you can swim, so snorkeling by boat is really recommended. Beautiful corals are full of fish! The changing room is very crowded because the high-speed boat on the way home is only 16:00 after 13:30 and concentrates on the ship at 16:00 and 17:00. Even if I went an hour ago, there was a big procession.
