Yabiji, Miyakojima

4.7
#1 of 18 in Wildlife in Miyakojima
Made of over 100 coral reefs near Ikema Island, Yabiji forms the largest coral reef group in Japan and stands out as a true paradise for divers. Curiously, the reef comes to the water's surface a couple of times a year, creating an “illusion land” extending up to 17 km (11 mi). You can tour the area under professional guidance to preserve the wildlife. Snorkeling and scuba diving year-round gives you an opportunity to observe an astonishing number of colorful fish, sea turtles, coral snakes, manta rays, tuna, and small sharks enjoying this “flower garden of the ocean,” as locals affectionately call it. A visit to Yabiji represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miyakojima trip builder to plot your vacation.

  • My husband and two people. Over the sea in Ishigaki Island, island, Islands, Hawaii resort has snorkeling, but here yabiji took was already perfect. Depending on where we also have snorkeling swim show face. Table corals spread out fish the deep where sunlight illuminates the fish fantastic. Also in a different place, with colourful corals over the sequence a few kilometres, swimming, swimming with coral. Floating just posted-I and blend into the sea before one is aware, and watch them getting tired. It is such a place.

  • We asked for 3,500 yen Japanese course was less amount. So even women like me were men I was considerably less. So much more if you ask ginger 3,500 yen is not enough.
