Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Enjoy lounging on Yonaha Maehama Beach, renowned among Okinawa beaches for its vivid turquoise water and soft, powdery sand. Despite its popularity, you’ll usually be able to find a deserted spot somewhere along the silky white beach, which stretches for 7 km (4.3 mi). Enjoy the scenic ocean views and laid-back atmosphere as you sunbathe or swim in the crystal clear waters. The stunning contrast of the pearly white sand and striking blue water provides a great background for photographs. Add Yonaha Maehama Beach and other attractions to your Miyakojima trip itinerary using our Miyakojima trip itinerary planning app.

  • Shame about the bridge across the view. Excellent sand texture and color. Great for wedding photos apparently… As there were at least three couples in matrimonial garb on a clouded over Saturday...  more »
  • too many people even i went in middle of corona loosen up. many people do watersports so i really don't think you can see a nice scene of the beach.  more »
  • Best place to visit in miyakojima..
  • Can't beat the beaches of Miyako. Yonaha is very chill. There are plenty of umbrellas to rent if you need to get out of the sun. We like it because it's normally very calm water, and the bottom is very soft and gradual. Safe for small kids. They also have a concession stand that sells Orion Beer!
