Kouri Island, Miyakojima

4.5
#3 of 12 in Nature in Miyakojima
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.

  • There are a lot of fashionable shops. There are many shops, such as aozora parlor and paradise fruits.

  • There is a quiet beach with few people, such as a private beach. It's close to Yonaha Maehama, so it's good to go there if you have time.

  • Maybe I'm missing something but we just visited and it's a very very small beach with a regular looking bridge connecting to the island. Good for a photo or two. There were heaps of tourists snorkelling in groups or riding on floaties behind a sea too all in a very very small area. Not my jam.
  • Great little island for a day trip. I recommend hitting up the shrimp shack and eating it at the beach while you take in the beautiful turquoise waters. Only downside is all the tourists.
