Hoshisuna Beach, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima
(3.4/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • Car rental in the sands of the hotel parking lot, went down the stairs to the beach. We went when islets at the big front we could go up to 15 m long. Rocks bearing trees that were well matched and sea blue and transparent. Iriomote Island is a must visit place.

  • Bike tourism in Iriomote Island, is found in the middle coast. Close to the car and bicycle parking is convenient. The sea is very beautiful.
