Hatenohama, Kumejima-cho

Island Beach Must See
Reset yourself with bright, white sand and clear blue water at Hatenohama on Kume Island. Accessible only through a glass-bottom boat tour, the 7 km long (4.3 mi) stretch of sand makes this beach a popular outing spot, where you can both swim and snorkel. See some of the exquisite shells and tropical fish, or take snorkeling and diving lessons with expert instructors. A huge area of pristine shallow water sheltered by coral reefs and funky rock formations offers excellent diving opportunities, and you'll see local fishermen looking for a catch further out from the shore. Bring water with you and go to the toilet beforehand, as the beach offers few amenities. Find out how to plan Kumejima-cho trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • As the guide says, it's great. It is one of the places to go absolutely when coming to Kumejima. I could see a lot of fish.

  • This is resort!! It is a place of feeling. Endless white sand beaches and blue waters. However, when it lands, the beach feeling of hate decreases. This is the best view from a distant view.
