Minna Island (水納島)
Seen from above, Minna Island is shaped like a croissant. About 15 minutes by ferry from Okinawa Main Island, this outlying island is surrounded by white sandy beaches and an emerald green ocean, and is popular for marine sports such as snorkeling. On the south side of the island, there is the so-called “Seagull rock,” and flocks of birds called terns visit to rear their young from early summer to fall.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
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.
