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.

    From the Jetty overhanging the sea. Old no osanbashi Pier and has a registered tangible cultural property. Why do cats.

    Was surprised by so much beauty. The pier as the road from the sea into the sky. Extraordinary colors of the sea and beautiful. (Pier is lovely and I'm a better, but...) When I went to the island come please

    I went to Tuesday 14 o'clock of the end of September. But it was clear on the right is on the left side was cloudy. Compared to the beach, light blue, but was disappointed. It fell a 1-year-old child, is scary.

    “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.

    You can see many kinds of fish swimming in clear water of the beach, you can feel free and very happy in there.
