Nishi Pier, Taketomi-jima Taketomi-cho

Take a walk out above the water on Nishi Pier for an impressive view of the shoreline and sea. The simple strip of concrete leading out from a remote beach blends in with the landscape, allowing the scenery to speak for itself. Walking out a few yards into the sea offers sights of different aquatic life at the edge of the pier, including sea cucumbers, shrimp, fish, crabs, and eels. With no facilities or businesses nearby, the pier remains a quiet place of relaxation and reflection in nature.

  • You can experience the shallow sea Pier. Carved tip and go up to tip during low tide and low, close to the surface of the water where take a picture. Fish and crabs came up near the pier and is a fun place. From here to stroll sandy beaches Kaiji that your recommendation is.

  • Otherwise, it said, without comment, disused Pier. You may not need, especially to go. Just end up walking towards the sea, I went to the tip back.

  •  I stopped by on Ishigaki Island trip.  Kaiji (star beach) from near the jutting Pier traces of about 50 meters, but is still a beautiful sea. Also circumnavigated the island in a rental at most about 3 hours I think, but on both sides of the road, natural papaya, quite enjoy. Do not leave baggage such as (particularly food) in the basket of a bicycle, parked at. Crow are aiming at.

  • Makes for a great day trip from Ishigaki. Rent a bike to see more of the island quickly.
  • Scenic pier that offers panoramic view of the sea. Water is crystal clear. A must visit for all travellers to Taketoni.
  • 100% clear water, fantastic photo location
  • “Check out the critters” We stopped here to check out the view and about an hour later we were still there, before you know it all the little critters are getting your attention, the many different types of crabs, slugs and the beautiful vivid blue fish-the type you'd see in a fish tank are all worth seeing. The colour of the ocean is remarkable and the water is crystal clear. It's the type of place where you could lose yourself for an hour or so and forget about the stresses of day to day life, I loved it.
  • Awesome place to visit
