  • From Naha Zamami Island went snorkeling in the day. Kerama was the first between the islands of Miyako and Ishigaki and also sea color is different, I felt like the dark blue. Though great coral forest and I joined the tour half-day boat snorkel ring sea turtle!!! I saw ️ five. Without escaping in familiar, even approaching the nearby Similan. It was a wonderful experience. Just surprisingly liked fast boats less round-trip flights by the ferry times more time consuming, so booking well in advance is required.

  • Kerama while blue is great! And are rather touristy old Zama taste Beach, Wow recruitment activities and rentals from the entrance. I felt it hard to sit already lined up umbrellas, so an umbrellas in the swimming area. Village bus rides to the beach, but no number of the day and time you worry about and play freely.
