Hoshisuna Beach, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

(260+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
Famous for its sands made of billions of tiny dead starfish, Hoshisuna Beach features a number of reefs and curious offshore rock formations covered with greener. Forming a half-closed bay with a micro climate, the beach offers good swimming and snorkeling opportunities. You can walk in the shallows and puddles during low tide, or rent snorkeling equipment at a facility right across the beach and wait for high tide. Huge differences in tide leave large pools filled with vivid marine life. You can dine in a nice restaurant nearby and the beach, some 10-15 minutes by car from Uehara, has toilet facilities.

  • Hoshisuna is a nice beach. It is a nice place to snorkel and relax some. I imagine if you go out pretty far you could see some really nice activity. However, I would recommend taking a trip to funuaki...  more »
  • Beatiful place, well worth a visit. The sand really is star-shaped, and there's some lovely coral. Great icecream (and all kinds of snorkling gear) can be bought at the restaurant of Pension Hoshinosu...  more »
