Irabu-jima Island, Miyakojima

#2 of 14 in Nature in Miyakojima
Island · Nature / Park
Once isolated, today Irabu-jima Island exudes a laid-back, island lifestyle with quiet, paradisiacal beaches and unspoiled coral reefs. With hundreds of scuba diving spots, you'll have innumerable chances to explore the diverse underwater environments of the island, from shallow, boulder-laden sandy bays, to subaqueous limestone crevasses and caves--used as breeding grounds by a legion of colorful fish. The island's compact size makes exploring it rather easy: getting from one side to the other will take you about an hour and a half on foot. Alternatively, rent a bicycle from Miyako-jima, linked here by a handsome road bridge.

  • 17ENDをはじめ色々な所から海の青さを堪能するのもいいですが、ダイビングで海の中からまた違った青さを堪能するべきですね。 魔王の宮殿というダイビングスポットがあるのですが、ここは本当に圧倒されます。水深25mという深さまで縦穴がスコーンと開いていて、そこに光が差し込むと竜宮城にでも来たのかと思ってしまうくらい素晴らしい光景を目の当たりにします。
  • 工事中のところ多数でびっくり。宮古島内でも最も急速に開発が進んでいるエリアなのではないでしょうか。大型のリゾートホテルというより、素敵なコテージやヴィラがたくさん建てられてる感じでした。私自身もそのような新しい宿に喜んで泊まっているわけですが、何もない素晴らしさ、これ以上の開発は寂しいような気もします。
