We went during the off season. Beautiful warm weather and clear blue water. Take sandals for sure. Much of the beach is covered in bits of smooth coral. You can walk on it but it is easier with footwear.

Lots of colourful fishes just few metres from the beach. Toilet and shower (need to pay) facility are available. There is a restaurant and you can rent snorkeling gears from a shop there too. 20 to 30 mins walk from the town.

Hello! I have just read your question. It takes 3.5 hours from Tokyo Haneda Airport to Naha Airport and then, from Naha Airport to Tomari Port where speed boat (40-50 min.) or ferry(70-80 min.) leaves to Zamami Island.
