Sunayama Beach, Miyakojima

At Sunayama Beach, observe the arch-shaped rock formed by centuries of crashing waves cutting a natural gate into the coral wall. The arch has become a symbol for this pristine beach, along with its white powdery sand and emerald green waters. Just 4 km (2.5 mi) away from the main city, the beach serves as a haven for water sport activities, as well as resting and soaking up the sun. Take advantage of some of the world's clearest waters--with 50-60 m (160-195 ft) visibility--by diving in and exploring the various coral species and marine life below the surface.

  • By the time you get to the beach with sneakers, sand will come in. You should bring your sandals as much as possible. You can change it in the car.

  • Access from the parking lot is close by, but it goes down a sand mountain with a good slope. Because this sand is considerably deep, I recommend wearing a pair of sandals or shoes that may be used even if the sand enters. I went to the time zone where there were few people in the evening, but there were ropes and signs that were off limits to the most iconic rock (where there are holes like a tunnel). The sea is spectacular, but it was a bit disappointing to get into the photo.
