  • A completely wonderful island to visit. Among the best thing we did in Japana. The beaches are almost deserted and the people who are swimming and swim instead of just lying on the beach and soak up the Sun. We are here to have fun in the water, not just sommarhänga. And the water! It is easy fölr even a child who can barely swim with life jackets out to the reef and swim around in aquarium fish. What happiness to see Nemo for real! The weather is also slightly better than on Okinawa island. Not that this has become a major tourist attraction for North euro peers who yearn for swimming and sunbathing is incomprehensible!

Where to stay in Zamami-son

On a vacation in Zamami-son, you can choose from a number of accommodation options, situated mainly on the islands of Zamami and Akajima. A number of lodgings concentrate around Zamami port, mostly guesthouses offering "tatami" floors and internet access, though a couple of establishments boast Western-style beds. A larger resort lies a bit further from the port, while a budget-conscious tourist can always opt to camp at a designated site on Ama Beach. If you prefer to stay on Akajima, you'll find a couple of guesthouses and rooms for rent, but bear in mind that camping is forbidden there.
