Aoshima Island has a very nice beach. It has all the facilities an ideal beach should have. In addition, to beach we found a nice shrine. There is a light house at the end of island which might be interesting to photographers. We found a relatively cheaper restaurant near the beach. Parking was also cheaper, 500 Yen for whole day....

You have to get there, as there is a special magic atmosphere. Nice view, nice walk and lot of "omamoris" with extra energy.

We were staying in the nearby Ana hotel. We walked to the island along the beach, just as the sun was setting. The little bridge to the Island and the Devil's washboard rock formations made a stunning vista. It's not spectacular or breathtaking, but it is special. Perhaps because the day was dying and there were few people, it was... More

Tranquil, not crowded. Worth the drive down from Miyazaki city. We enjoyed the drive, the local food and the friendly people. Parking nearby reasonable. Plenty of souvenir shops around the place.

Aoshima island is a relaxing place for a visit. Devil's washboard is a stunning and special natural shore. Easy to get there through bus or JR from Miyazaki JR station. Plenty of souvenir shops and restaurants.

I have no idea what is so special about this island I felt scammed coming here. Beware of people trying to lure foreigners into paying 500 yen for the parking here. There's free parking further down. I saw the island took a few pictures, didn't bother going past the bridge and left feeling very disappointed.

Interesting nature shore line that look like washboard. Unique - have not seen in my other travels. Peaceful island. Easy to walk one round. Not wheelchair accessible because no proper boardwalk.

After the arduos hike at Kirishima the day before, my family was happy to spend an lazy hour here. We saw many multigeneration families, all dressed to the nines, especially the mothers and the children, and their poodles. Perhaps it was a special occasion. I have no idea. We also saw more ways of praying for good luck that we... More

A good chill out place. You have to take in the setting, the shrine, the rock formations, vegetation and the history. Tie this in with town and approach and you could easily spend a couple of hours. Children also can go rock pooling.

Its cool, but you'll be done in about 30min. Good surf spot but localism when its good. Good luck and have fun, waters warm in the summer!
