    Ikei Island is a remote island accessible via a marine road extending from the eastern part of Okinawa’s main island. This beach is in the southern part of the island, where you can enjoy gazing at the serene cobalt blue sea, as well as partake in marine sports such as diving, snorkeling, and sea kayaking, not to mention barbeques and other activities.

    いくつかの口コミに、ビーチを利用する際は、料金を徴収されるという違法行為があるとの報告でしたが、私が利用した時は、特にそのような事はありませんでした。 いずれにしても、仮に、違法行為があったとしても長くは続かないでしょう。 ビーチだけの話をすれば、穴場ですし、海もキレイなのでオススメです。 売店も少しあるので、食事の心配もありません。 See some reviews are collected...

Okinawa Areas

around-area-map

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
