Kabira Bay, Ishigaki

4.4
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.

  • soft sand makes you imagine what it may like to feel if you are walking in the cloud and beautiful beach. BUT UNFORTUNATELY TOO MANY GLASS BOAT for tourists ruined the view of its original look. It even makes it look too industrial. I know people are trying to accommodate as many as possible and all but that is TOO MANY GLASS BOAT in and out.
  • Stunning bay with nice azure colours. There are a few boats offering sightseeing tours of the bay, some of them with glass floor to see the fishes. No swimming or diving is allowed in the bay to help protect the corals and sea life (however there are quite a bit of litter on the beach). Still a must see place when visiting Ishigaki.
