  • From the port-side rural Observatory walk around and around. Would never get bored because it pass, I'm tired but all good. It took me about 4 hours to go around. Hard way, up the Hill by bike, walking is recommended. It is the car rental.

  • Okinawa countryside scenery, scuba diving and snorkeling is the best place who wants to watch the sea turtles and whales, I think that the transparency of the sea would delight if you like the sea, Coral Sea, personally of the Typhoon passed 6 months later in February when I think if you would state who dislike the ship there are high-speed boats and ferries arrive at the early shaking fast boats, high-fare, like half-dead cheap

  • People on the island are also very intimate, the most important is the beautiful sea! Just walking around here feels comfortable! Many people come here to dive, but it's nice to walk around here.

  • Overwhelmed by colors of the beautiful sea. Guests can enjoy a snorkel. Join a tour and took up the point. Plenty of coral. You can see also a lot of fish.

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.
