Hoshisuna no Hama Beach星砂の浜
Hoshisuna Beach (“Star-sand Beach”) features the star-shaped sand grains which are a famous Okinawa souvenir. There is an uninhabited island about 50 meters offshore, and some impressive coral reefs. The water is very clear, so much that individual fish can be made out in the shallows. The rocky areas are a habitat for large numbers of fish, making this a good place to enjoy snorkeling. The gently shelving beach is a safe place for children to play.

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.
