Kabira Bay, the most photographed sight on the island, remains noted for its pristine white sands, blue waters, and lush vegetation. Although it's not safe to swim here due to strong currents and the presence of jelly fish, you can enjoy the picturesque vista from land, or take a ride on a glass-bottomed boat to observe the coral reefs and manta rays from the surface of the water.

One of the most popular tourist attractions on Ishigaki. Easy to reach by public bus.

A beautiful beach, variety of colours of the water, crystal clear. Easy access, viewing point. The most touristic beach on the island, so you have boats everywhere. Still not overcrowded at that time (January). Barely shops and restaurants, prepare for that. Drinks are available, most people come by boat, we came by bike. Must see and worth it!
