Okinawa – Smaller Islands | Travel Guide
While the smaller islands of the Okinawa island group might not be a typical destination for international tourists, they have plenty to offer in terms of natural beauty and tranquility. For a peaceful beach holiday, the Yaeyama islands, Miyakojima, and other small islands make for a perfect destination. This travel guide will help you discover some of Okinawa’s other islands besides the main island!
Iriomote is part of the subtropical Yaemyama island chain in Okinawa.
Taketomi Island is a small island situated just off the coast of Ishigaki Island in the Okinawa Archipelago. Because of its size, it is often visited as a day trip from Ishigaki.
Visitors to Ishigaki Island come for the island's abundant nature, wonderful beaches, and gorgeous resorts. But there is more to do on the island than just staying in your resort!
Throughout the archipelago of Okinawa you can find beautiful beaches, but the beaches of Miyako are supposed to be the best. 300 kilometers south of the main island of Okinawa, this small island is a paradise for swimmers and divers.
