Hoshisuna Beach, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

(3.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • → buy a small bottle with Uncle parking stalls attract star sand, put the Palm of your hand to the water's edge to the beach, the sand color has changed (PETA!) → → views, flip over to the Palm of your hand with star sand bottles! And there is also fine, requires patience and time and dexterity. Snorkel if many fish is seen it is, toddlers can be found beautiful color fish in shallow water (adult ankle level). Buying sausage shop in front of the beach (in the middle of the stairs), and feeding them then I'll be going there.

  • Is the naming of stars, so expect a visit, but a little disappointed. Difficult to distinguish the stars Marisa began farsighted vision, and a perfect star sand small became what it is.
