Nishihama Beach, Hateruma-jima

#1 of 15 in Things to do in Hateruma-jima
Clean white sand and the rock-studded sea bed, visible through azure water, make Nishihama Beach the most natural beach on Hateruma Island. An hour away by boat from Ishigaki Island, this 1 km (0.6 mi) stretch of dry white sand and emerald-green water makes the perfect spot for a barefoot walk. You can enjoy the sparkling sea both by snorkeling and swimming. The beach offers showers and vending machines with drinks, but you should bring some food along, as you won't find any restaurants at the beach. You can rent a bike at the port to cycle here, or take a 10-minute walk from Hateruma Port.
