This question may have been answered... but I am planning two week trip to Japan that will include a few days 3-4 on one of the okinawa islands! We will be looking to go Mid-April (after we see the cherry blossoms on the main island) My husband and I are certified (we just finished a dive at the great barrier reefs). I am having a really tough time figuring out which island would be the best fo visit.
My number one priority is scuba diving sites. We particularly enjoy bright coral/fish sites, and sites known for something for a particular animal (e.g. sharks, manatees, squid) etc. Not sure which dive site would be best for april time frame either.
My second priority would be some nice beaches. However, I am a bit concerned on the weather being too cold to relax on the beach so I would definitely choose scuba diving over beach time.
