Beach Nature / Park
At Kondoi Beach, explore the expanse of white coral sand and take a swim in the Pacific's warm turquoise waters. Equipped with changing rooms and showers, the crescent-shaped beach offers excellent conditions for bathing and relaxation. Head out to the wooden piers, which jut out into the shallow sea, for a clear view of the horizon. Amenities include umbrella rentals, and nearby shops and food stands sell cold beer and snacks. Round out your visit with a leisurely stroll through the nearby village, where unpaved lanes of sand lead past traditional houses with red clay roofs, grand flower beds, guardian shisa lions, and low walls made of volcanic stone. Respect the Okinawan holy places for venerating the gods (utaki) by not crossing their thresholds uninvited.

Where to stay in Taketomi-jima Taketomi-cho

The tiny, quaint island of Taketomi-jima is known for its variety of "minshuku," traditional Japanese bed and breakfasts, most of which offer futons, basic amenities, and often home-cooked meals, as well as shared bathhouses. Most visitors come on a day trip from Taketomi-cho or Ishigaki, where you can easily find a room in one of the guesthouses and experience a peaceful night on the small islands, without the crowds of day tours.
