Beautiful Island, Must visit Hate-no Hama!

It's a wonderful island with less commercialized. If you visit here, don't forget to go to hate-no hama! It’s only 20 minutes by boat from “Tomari Fisharena”, Kume Island’s port.

Wonderful Island with loads of activities such as snorkling and sightseeing. One may appreciate the Kumejima Pepper and Tatami Ishi. The Sunsets are marvellous and the coral reef simply very beautiful. A Magic Scenery and highly recommended, Zabojad recommends it to anyone. Happy Sharing Happy Inside
