Kabira bay is the main attraction of Ishigaki Island. We took a city bus from port to reach there. The view from the shore was amazing. It has clear blue water with plenty of corals. We took a glass boat to view the corals. There are also various options for snorkeling and scuba diving.

Offers awesome view and strong sea breeze. Quite a drive to the location but it's well worth it once you set foot on the beach!

We stayed at a hotel in Kabira Bay for 5 nights and used it as a base for exploring the island. The bay itself is breathtaking and well worth a visit but it is worth noting that you aren't allowed to swim at this location. I suspect this is down to the very high volume of boat traffic. The beach... More

It is a very picturesque scenary, it is a very nice beach although it is not allowed to swim there. There is the possibility to take a glass bottom boat.

Beautiful colored waters and bay with small islands. Water changes color depending on depth and sunlight. We looked out on the waters from the lookout point above the glass bottom boats, then came back an hour or so later after lunch and checking out the black pearl shop. The water level had changed by a half meter or so and... More

We took the boat ride, enjoyed the yummy ice-cream and we had a great time with my toddler walking around the bay after the boat ride, agree with some of the travelers that the marine creatures are quite little to view, just that we met a big sea turtle highlighted our ride. The Car park are quite full and many... More

This was as beautiful as the pictures we had seen before visiting. It was disappointing that you couldn't swim there as currents are too strong and the glass bottom boats go in and out from this point. However the island has plenty of amazing beaches to swim at. We didn't go on the boats, but I'm sure it was have... More
