Irabu-jima Island, Miyakojima

4.5
#2 of 12 in Nature in Miyakojima
Once isolated, today Irabu-jima Island exudes a laid-back, island lifestyle with quiet, paradisiacal beaches and unspoiled coral reefs. With hundreds of scuba diving spots, you'll have innumerable chances to explore the diverse underwater environments of the island, from shallow, boulder-laden sandy bays, to subaqueous limestone crevasses and caves--used as breeding grounds by a legion of colorful fish. The island's compact size makes exploring it rather easy: getting from one side to the other will take you about an hour and a half on foot. Alternatively, rent a bicycle from Miyako-jima, linked here by a handsome road bridge.

  • There are beaches everywhere. However, there are many places where there is no shower or toilet. It is more peaceful than miyakojima city.

  • When I went to Miyako Island on August 27 th and 2nd of one night, I used a rental car. The sea is beautiful because i did not take a special purpose, but I feel that there was nothing special.

  • It is good from many places including the 17th END to enjoy the blue of the sea, diving in from the Sea also blue is different to enjoy should be. Have in diving spots of the Palace of the King, but here is really overwhelming. Scones and open shaft to a depth of 25 meters, light comes in there and wonder what came to the Palace in Nice sight to witness.
