Kouri Island, Miyakojima

#3 of 14 in Nature in Miyakojima
Island · Nature / Park
The small islet of Kouri Island offers peaceful beaches, quaint eateries, and great snorkeling. The island is so small you can easily traverse it on foot, but consider hiring a bicycle from the "mainland" and heading across the bridge for full autonomy. Bordered by white sand beaches and a crystal clear ocean, the island provides perfect conditions for snorkeling and observing the marine life around the unusual rock formations. You can choose from a couple of reputable restaurants serving up local dishes, though the beaches make very picturesque picnic spots. Bear in mind that many of the island's beaches remain quiet and unspoiled, with little in the way of amenities, so bring along some water and snacks to keep you going.

  • It's alright. Big flat island. Lots of sugar cane. Some flavorless resort hotels and a little tower you can se  more »
  • Very quiet and small island. We passby a shrine and then, to the tower overseeing Kurima bridge. Beware of mosquitoes & big spiders.  more »
  • Has so many shops and everything is so beautiful, awesome picture taking spots too
  • Great view and great drive along the bridge! Not tooo far from the south of Okinawa so much shorter and drive there still provided simple but good view after exiting the expressway but incomparable to ride up further northwards to Cape Hedo. The view of the bridge was amazing though! I went there just for the sunset at Kouri Ocean Tower so didnt explore the island much.
