Beautiful and peaceful island. We usually bike loops of the island. Impressive 3.4 km bridge connecting Irabu and Miyako islands. I'm not familiar with accommodation or restaurants on Irabu as we only visit for cycle training. Impressive views and nice beaches.

When you cross the bridge, there is a small beach on the right after you take stairs down. There you will see a perfect spot for sunrise.
