17END beach on Shimojishima in Miyakojima Islands. Famous as a beach that appears at low tide. It is a beautiful blue beach even at high tide, but it transforms into a phantom beach where the beach appears at low tide.

Angel Road

If you come to Shodoshima, this popular spot is a must-visit. A mysterious sand road that appears twice a day at low tide.
