This site has a very beautiful entrance and a great photo op. But it is shallow, small, basic, and crowded. There is no challenge to the dive. If you are frightened of more challenging dives then this is a very good beginner cave. The surrounding...More

Our first venture into snorkelling with our 7 year old girl and she could not get enough of the outing. Despite having many groups all wanting to get inside the Cave for photos, everything was done in a most orderly fashion.

It's a cave with an open cavern at the end. Nice but nothing special. Not many things to see or do apart of it. The problem is that there are too many tourists and divers that make the experience unpleasant. Specially shame many divers that...More

We went in August, peak season, and unfortunately this meant lots and lots of snorkellers and divers. Expect to wait 20min or so to get 'that' photo inside the cave. Nevertheless, the cave was beautiful and we enjoyed snorkelling just outside the cave even more....More

Very basic diving spot with spectacular underwater cave views! From the shallow coral shores to deeper waters, you can see lots of tropical fishes in groups swimming around. Highly recommend anyone who wants a great experience to try it out (even beginners)!

We booked the snorkeling tour to the blue cave at the Sheraton Sunmarina hotel. It is recommendable to go in the morning, as the sun light plays an important part in the experience.

Somewhat crowded but still beautiful. It's an easy dive and absolutely worthwhile. You can book trips there at local dive centers like Piranha Divers Okinawa.

High season is July through September End of may water temperature is around 25-26 but wet suits are needed as well as life jackets if you snorkel. Have fun!

Hi, you don't need a wetsuit the water is very warm. The water is only rough in the winter so you should be good.
