Hoshisuna Beach, Iriomote-jima

4.3
#1 of 25 in Parks 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.

  • It was a windy day, but the sea was relatively not rough in the beach, and if you watch the flow, it's really fun to see a beautiful fish with a normal snorkeling set. I would definitely recommend it to those with children. There are only a lot of people, but... There may not be much hidden feeling or special feeling, but I think that the person who is not good at swimming is able to enjoy snorkeling in a really good beach.

  • I snorkeled on October 14th. Unfortunately, the weather was windy and it was cold and I could only do a little time, but the fish swam a lot. The three-piece set is 1000 yen for 3 hours, 500 yen for the best, and 300 yen for changing rooms and showers, but it seems to be crowded in summer. There was also a toilet.
