I absolutely love snorkeling at this spot. I have been snorkeling here since 2002 and its just a wonderful spot to visit whether you are getting in the water or not. If you get in to snorkel you will find that its like being in a giant aquarium. There are so many different types of tropical fish, coral, and you... More

Excellent snorkeling here: clear waters, beautiful fish of many colors and sizes, not much of a current. Probably the most crowded snorkeling and diving spot I've visited hitherto. Plenty of US soldiers, Chinese, Korean and Japanese tourists. Safety in numbers. Four not five stars because most of the coral I saw was dead. Quite disappointing. Ishigaki's Yonehara beach, the last... More

I went snorkelling here at the end of march on a beautiful clear day. We went with Take Dive, who were really lovely, spoke great english and told us that the conditions that day were perfect! As soon as I put my goggles into the water I couldn't stop exclaiming at how amazing the fish were! There were so many... More

We were taken out snorkelling with Take Dive, a shop just nearby cape Maeda. We went in December, so they apologised it was so cold, however they provided thick wetsuits and the water really wasn't cold at all. The water was clearer than anywhere we've seen in snorkelling trips in Thailand and Malaysia, maybe due to the season, and there... More

It is a wonderful place for snorkeling! Very beautiful! It is shallow and you might stand on the urchin- wear shoes. Crowded with divers- beginners

If you are a strong swimmer, swim from Greens Beach down to Maeda. You'll enjoy lots of amazing scenery without the tourist crowds, even in the middle of the day. We saw a white sea horse, cuttlefish, lionfish, and many more exotic species of fish.

My sister is on the island visiting and wanted to attempt snorkeling. She has been snorkeling with me at other locations but is still a novice and not always comfortable with it. We drove to Maeda Point one Sunday to look it over. She felt that she could snorkel there because it was shallow in the afternoon and she could... More

I was a bit scared for the first 1 min, but the coaches are all so professional. one coach for 2 to 3 persons, so you can figure it out it's so safe. our coach guided us all the time, swam in...

We don't dive, we sometimes snorkel but we always enjoy great views. This is one of them. You pay 100Y for parking entry but you could park outside the designated area. Its not a big park in itself but its easy to get to the look out point for viewing. If you're snorkeling/diving along the west coast of okinawa-honto, have... More

This is a great snorkeling spot in addition to the walking paths above the cliffs. The steps provide an easy access into the water for a wonderful day in the water. It closes at 1700 hrs though so go early.
