Hoshisuna Beach, Taketomicho Iriomote-jima

3.4
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Taketomicho Iriomote-jima
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.

  • It is a beautiful beach. The first small star sand was not found. Over reading glasses, staring at Gee I finally found. Please note that for the elderly. I think you can also snorkel, so next time try.

  • Is called the stars or the Sun in the beach sand sandy or I do not know, but very small and without the Guide. Is looking for fun, but eventually will be purchased in the souvenir shop.

  • Rent a bike! Got the impression that it's not beach or filter. And much was because it didn't have enough time, but all star sand I was looking for. Find the sand of a star, as a beach place.
