I went there to watch the sunset, and it was the perfect place. Wonderfully secluded, you walk on this narrow, sandy pathway through the trees and bushes to get there. The beach itself is small, hemmed in by rocks and trees. To the left is the rock archway. The sunset was perfectly framed by this archway. It was beautiful. One... More

This beach is really small, and people seem to come here to just take pictures, but the water is warm and blue and there are fish that come up and swim with you. Such a nice place to spend the early morning or a sunset.

Awesome beach. We cycled here and spent the whole day at the beach. Amazing spot for snorkeling and relaxing. Lots of tourist traffic coming through just to take photos and leave. Spent hours in the water. Some fish but it's not the place to snorkel on Miyakojima- there's only snorkeling spots for that.

We went to 3 beaches, and Sunayama was by far our favorite. We stayed there from 13:00 until sunset. We took a taxi, and we walked up a hill and then down a big hill to the beach. Lots of people go to the beach to take pictures and leave, but we enjoyed spending hours there soaking in the sun... More

We visited this beach in February and had it all to ourselves. There is a parking lot with bathrooms and to reach the beach, you must walk down a steep sand slope. At the bottom is a stunning beach with a natural rock arch. Since it was off-season, there were no equipment rental vendors around but there is a machine... More

ANOTHER beautiful Miyakojima beach! As the photos show, its also a beautiful natural rock sculpture. We went a cpl times and were surprised by how any tours buses drop off passengers who step onto the beach, take a few pix and leave. Move over to the far right and grab a slab of wood palette from inside the cave and... More

Miyakojima has several great beaches, but Sunayama would have my vote for the best. One of the amazing things about all of the beaches on the island is that none of them were too crowded at any point during our stay, and Sunayama followed suit. It's a quick drive from the main part of town and you have to walk... More

you get there in 10 minutes drive from hirara, and 10 minutes walk from the parking. The beach is very small, with a beatiful rock arch at one side. The sea is nice even if not extraordinary, good for swimming and -much less- for snorkeling. Overall, a very nice place, you wonder how it is possible that so few people... More
