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. Start your trip to Miyakojima by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
