A beautiful bay, where photography can become an addiction. So make sure you spend some time in peace looking at the nature. It has an observatory from where you get beautiful view. You can also visit R's Cafe when in Kabira Bay.

A lovely place to spend a few hours - chilled out and relaxed, lots of couples and families around. An excellent place to get THAT Ishigaki classic photo of the crystal clear water and amazing beaches. You don't need a huge amount of time here but you can always bring a picnic and have a beach meal. Highly recommend a... More

Really enjoyed walking this beach, sand is great quality. The water is a magical mix if colours, definitely recommend a visit. The boats were run down and ticket stands are just a shack, better amenities required to get full stars.

Nice beaches and islands. Worth to visit when it is quite, bit touristic crowded. Reachable by public bus.

There are not too many attractions on the Ishigaki Island and this is a must go place. We went on a beautiful sunny day and the view of the bay was as lovely as a postcard picture. We did the glass bottom boat. Honestly, there was not much to see under the water but the boat ride was very enjoyable.... More

Really nice location to see crystal water with different level of blue, it will be good if able to have a more obvious sign for tourist who walk there.

Kabira Bay is very picturesque and well worth the visit by car or bus. But the glass bottom boat excursions from the bay only make sense if 1) it's too cool to swim and 2) you don't know how to snorkel. The boats only spend about 30 minutes (or less) going out to the coral heads and back. What you... More
