Visited Minna island after a snorkeling trip with the Ocean Island Crew. The island is small with a nice white sand beach. The population of the island is a whopping 30 people and services are limited. There is a ferry dock, with a sheltered waiting area if the weather turns ugly.

It was breathtaking. i highly recommend snorkeling, i cannot describe in words how beautiful and pristine the water was, and it's like a dream on earth. The fish are absolutely beautiful, so many different colours, a true definition of earthly beauty was on this island.

What a place. We went as part of an ITT tour from Kadena AB but it doesn't seem like it would be hard to figure out on your own. The island has crystal clear water and really nice sand. There are plenty of open areas to out your things while you enjoy the water. There are also some food places... More

It's a 15 mins ferry ride from Toguchi port. I can't find the Map code of the port, so I use Google map (pls do not use the-other-map). There are a few timing departing from/to the port/island (depends on which month). Unfortunately, it was drizzling when we reached there. Remember to bring some drinks/snacks to the island. There's only 1... More

I joinned a snorkel trip of Aquapopo. We snorkel at the boat. There are many many fish around the area. After the 1-hr snorkel trip, we arrived Minna Island (by boat, not swim to the island of course!!). The sand of the beach is not fine at all, but the water is extremely clear. After the 1-hr snorkel trip, we've... More

For a photographer or explorer to spend the day, other than the short ferry ride to the island, everything is free. It is a small, quiet island and has beautiful beaches and plenty of water sports equipment available for rent. There were many tourists on the beaches and in the water and it appeared they were having fun. Getting off... More
