Zamami Island (座間味島)

Island

Zamami Island is an island located 40 kilometers west of Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture. It is the main island of the village of Zamami in the Kerama Islands group. The contrast between the pure white coral sands and the emerald green seas is wonderful, with divers from all over the world gathering here. The rich coral reefs became a registered area of the Ramsar Convention in 2005 as an area of ocean that nurtures living things. Since then, the area of ocean meeting the registration requirements increased during 2015 and the actual registered area expanded. Also, the sandy beaches are also spawning grounds for sea turtles and in the winter a pod of humpback whales come to give birth and raise their young. It is a beautiful island where you can experience nature.

          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.
