Kondoi Beach, Taketomi-jima Taketomi-cho

4.5
#1 of 37 in Parks in Yaeyama-gun
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Taketomi-jima Taketomi-cho holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kondoi Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Okinawa seems fine, feel free to go from the island of Ishigaki Island Beach, blue sea can be seen. You could walk the land, because unfortunately it was cloudy, but it was just low tide across the shallow sea. Shallow anyway because no suitable snorkel, take photos, just is good beaches for bathing of children.
