Beautiful and quiet beach, with trees that provide a nice shade, a safety net in the water and basic facilities. Only one hotel is visible from the beach, the rest of the landscape is very pretty with only trees and mountains. The beach is shallow, at low tide the water is only 20-30 cm deep but it is still enough... More

This is a decent beach, but the sand is coarse and the ocean floor is rocky. The beach by the Intercontinental is much better as far as a swimming beach is concerned. Do stop for a dip if driving around the island. The road has signs for the beach so it's easy to find.

We went there around 2:30pm during low tide and there was no water but rough corals. The beach is not beautiful and there's nothing to see.

This is a very natural beach that is free and not as crowded or touristy as nearby Kabira Bay. Unlike Kabira it allows swimming, though on our visit the water was so shallow so far out that swimming is not really possible. There is a lot of coral and seaweed in the water, and many locals harvesting the seaweed for... More

I wanted to swim and I have found only this place on the western part of the island where I was allowed to swim and there were some facility still open (I mean shower and toilet). There were no longer any net so you could actually walk about 200m and the water level was still about 120-140 so I can... More

I was there at low tide and it was impossible to get wet past your ankles. The netted swimming area is small and the toilets/ showers are old and pretty smelly.

This beach is probably best for families with children due to the calm, shallow water. The beach is not that wide but stretches around a bay and has nice facilities and a paved parking lot next to the mangrove-lined shore. Worth visiting for a quick dip.

Sukuji is a very nice beach, perfect for families especially those with younger children as it is one of the safer beaches on Ishigaki with swim nets to keep away the box jellyfish. A good and bad point is how shallow it is, especially at low tide it is almost impossible to swim there. but again great for getting kids... More
