Really nice beach and scenery surrounding the area. Be aware that the walk back up the hill is pretty long with soft sand so if you have kids be prepare to carry them. Also watch out for shark warnings if your going to swim there.

What a wonderful beach where few people go to. We had the whole place to ourselves. For some reason locals don't really go to the beach on Miyakojima. Check it out.

When planning our trip to Miyakojima, I knew this was going to be someplace we HAD to visit. My father-in-law had a picture of this beach as his computer screen saver and I always thought it was so beautiful. To get to the beach from the parking lot is a bit of a walk with some steep grades, but well... More

Built sandcastles & enjoyed the warm ocean. Great walk from the parking lot to the beach. Saw the biggest spider ever.

This is a beautiful small beach reached after a little over a 5 minute walk, largely downhill. There's an interesting stone arch which not only provides a great view, it also gives shade should you want that. There is a bathroom, a drink vending machine, and a truck serving mostly drinks at the parking lot. On the beach, though, there... More

Well, as intimate as having other tourists with you go. To get to the beach, you have to walk along a path which will make you feel like you're going on an adventure. The narrow path eventually opens to a large sandy area then you'll be rewarded with the view that is Sunayama Beach. It's not as spacious as the... More

In my opinion. Small beach, very beautiful. There is not any diving equipment to rent but maybe there is no need...

Relatively small beach, but surprisingly quiet with a great outlook and sheltered swimming. You can rent snorkelling gear on the beach itself.
