#1 of 12 in Nature in Miyakojima
Rent a bicycle to explore Shimojiiima Island, connected to the much bigger Irabu Island by a complex bridge system with a total length of 3,540 m (11,614 ft). With turquoise and azure shades of water, the island stands out as a famous diving and snorkeling spot. Part of Irabu National Park, its 7,000 inhabitants cultivate sugar cane and fish. You can swim, cycle, stroll, or fish, enjoying pristine nature and shades of blue. Keep an eye out for skipjack tuna fish, which make frequent visits to these waters. For airplane spotting, visit the island's international airport. Plan a trip to Miyakojima easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • 17END went after the vehicle was closed to traffic. You can park in the street pond or in the space in front of the road closure and walk to the tip. Rather, the car didn't appear in the photo, and it was not messy, so it was good to be closed to traffic. The color of the sea changes greatly by the angle and the time of sunlight. We watched the Jetstar landing at the tip of 17END. I had goose bumps from the experience of not blocking between the plane and myself, and it was hard for the airplane to pass overhead.

  • A small island next to Irabe Island. The base airport which had not been used up to now was renewed, and the terminal building etc. became new when visiting, and it replied to the airport which was very beautiful and resort very much. The island itself is small, so i think it will be a highlight of nature and beaches.
