This beach is beyond beautiful! The fine sand, clear waters and beautiful rock formations adding to its landscape. Be warned, as the name suggests, the entrance to this beach is a mountain of sand. you have to walk uphill before being greeted by the majestic view at the "peak". We spend an hour soaking in the clear waters. Small groups... More

The smallest beach I went to on Miyakojima, Sunayama is ideal for couples looking to while away the entire afternoon with nothing more than each other's company. I enjoyed the slightly steep, uphill trek (slope + sand = good workout) from the car park to the beachfront. The slope made for some awesome photos, especially since it was a downhill... More

This beach is tiny and not particularly impressive, but it's where we had the most fun! The rock formatations are beautiful as is the sand dune you have to walk over to get here.

This beach is small and picturesque, a perfect photo opportunity and great snorkeling. We were there in the middle of August and it wasn't busy at all. A must see on Miyakojima. Bring your own snorkeling gear because the booth that rents it doesn't open until 10am and it costs about ¥1000/item! AND you have to rent the beach table... More

It is a very small beach, but it has beautiful views from the top of the sand dune. There are beach umbrellas and other water activity rentals. We saw an amazing sunset there! I liked this beach more than Yonaha-Maehama beach, because it had a very intimate feeling and mush less people there. Too bad we didn't try snorkeling there.... More

There are beautiful limestone rock formations right at the shoreline, that also offer shaded places to sit. The water is warm and calm here, and it's great for swimming and snorkeling.

This is definitely a nice romantic spot for sunset. It is not a hot spot for snorkeling.
