Yabiji, Miyakojima

4.8
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.

  • I snorkel on various beaches, but i can enjoy a wonderful sea view because I guide you to the point where I can not go by myself. I was impressed to be able to experience the topography of the deep sea which seemed to be sucked in!

  • Every time I go, I'm fascinated by the beauty of the sea. Moreover, the scenery in the sea is not the same. So it's a place I want to go as many times as I want.
