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. It's right next to Shimojishima Airport, so if you're lucky, you may encounter touch-and-go. If you come to Miyakojima, this is one of the places you should visit.

Hatoma-jima Island is famous as a location of Japanese TV series 'Ruri-no Shima (Sapphire Island), and has beautiful sea around it. I was very moved with much more beautiful sea than that of other islands of Okinawa.◎Hatoma Island is small that you can walk around. There're no remarkable tourist spots, you can enjoy the slow island time leisurely.

It is difficult to visit here without guide. Roots of Indian laurel dangle and sunbeams come through the leaves in the sanctuary cave. And you should worship before entering because it is a spiritual place and was also a air‐raid shelter.

Accessible from Kumejima Island by boat, an island with only white sandy beach is called Hatenohama.

By the way, they're so moving from the airplane.◎You need to take part in the tour to Hatenohama. If you want to look it from airplane, ride a plane to Miyako-jima Island, and take right side seats.
