Beautiful clear water, white sand. Not much people if you go in the morning! If low tide, you can walk out to the sand island in the middle of the ocean. 10 minutes walk to the star-sand beach.

Amazing water. Shallow, yes, the maximum height you’ll get will be torso. But i have taken amazing pictures at mid tide, my friends couldn’t believe a place like this existed in japan. There is not much shade though, so maybe don’t stay too long if...More

I got to know during a bus tour in the Taketomi Island from the Ishigaki island. The view was enough to undestand why there are several tours just to stay here.
