Taketomi-jima Taketomi-cho

(3/5 based on 2,200+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, beaches, historic sites
A tiny island in the Yae-yama archipelago, Taketomi-jima enjoys popularity as a beach getaway, best known for its stretches of "star sand"--sand made up of tiny star-shaped exoskeletons of ancient fossils. Sightseeing on Taketomi-jima can include a walk along its streets lined with traditional red-roofed houses, or taking a ride in a water-buffalo cart. Laid-back, quiet, and untouched by recent developments, the island doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment, but the scenic beaches, picturesque sunsets, and freshly caught shrimp may be all you need.
