Great Photo Spot

We took a glass bottom boat, which was fun. It was interesting to see the black coral as we walked down the beach. The area is very pretty

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

the views are breathtaking and the boat rides a lot of fun - highly recommended. If the weather is a little cloudy, hang around, it will brighten at some point and the colors will be worth the wait!

Beautiful beaches and surrounds. Go for a ride in a glass bottomed boat. Worth it! Shops and facilities near by

Worth a visit for the scenery and a trip on a glass bottom boat, which I didn't do, but there are lots of tourists there.

I have been to Kabira-bay three times in my life. It is breathtaking. Color of the ocean is beautiful and amazing. This is something you can't see mainland. You must add here your must see list.

It's a nice view, and if the tide is a little out you can walk along the shore. After you leave the main area, the beach is covered with garbage which makes it less nice. I would say it's worth the trip if you have a car. If you're taking the bus, it might not be worth it as the... More

Beautiful beach tucked away up in the north of Ishigaki island with a glass bottomed boat tour of the only living coral reef in Japan. Not a bad way to spend Xmas Eve. The boat cost around 700yen per head, and took just the 6 of us even though capacity was about 25, should be a 1000 or so in... More

Very nice looking place but that's about it. We took also glass bottom boat cruise but the water was a bit murky and it was not unforgettable experience. Worth the visit if you are around the area but not the place to go if you are looking for an adventure.

It takes a while to get there by the public bus, but once you are there, is the best spot in all the island, the beach and the water are just gorgeous!
