Hoshisuna Beach, Iriomote-jima

3.5
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Iriomote-jima
Famous for its sands made of billions of tiny dead starfish, Hoshisuna Beach features a number of reefs and curious offshore rock formations covered with greener. Forming a half-closed bay with a micro climate, the beach offers good swimming and snorkeling opportunities. You can walk in the shallows and puddles during low tide, or rent snorkeling equipment at a facility right across the beach and wait for high tide. Huge differences in tide leave large pools filled with vivid marine life. You can dine in a nice restaurant nearby and the beach, some 10-15 minutes by car from Uehara, has toilet facilities.

  • Rain was falling in the day visited the great Gale for the number of people who were not at all star sand near the stairs. I think there is going to go to the edge of the beach and had a star of fine sand, looking for a little walk.
