“One of Kumejima's must sees!”
Review of Hatenohama

We spent a whole day on this tiny sand spit. It seemed the only way to get there is through an organised tour (which the hotels offer), and it was a great experience to sit on this little island and be able to snorkel with the fish. Budget for hiring an ageing parasol and two chairs (a bit pricey at £30) for the day, because without it the sun is too intense and the only other shade is a group tent next to the cooks. Sand shoes are useful. Having hired a car and gone all around Kumejima and seen its beaches, this is the one to go to.

I was spending a few days in Kumejima and was told that Hatenohama is a must go snorkelling place. So I booked a half day tour through the hotel I stayed in (ie. Cypress hotel, a lovely hotel and for details you can refer to my review on this hotel).

It was early May so the summer peak didnt start yet, apart from me and my husband, there're only another couples there so we basically had Hatenohama all by ourselves :) You can do a bit snorkelling around there, but still its better to ask the boat guy to take you to deeper water area around Hatenohama where there're more different fishes. I did snorkelling again at the famous Cape Maeda but water quality cant be compared to Hatenohama. If you like snorkelling and happen to stay in Kumejima anyway, dont waste the chance to visit Hatenohama, its a place you'll remember for life :)
