At the Sunayama Beach you’ll find that there is a strangely shaped rock which is why this beach has become popular. The rock has formed into a beautiful arch which is almost like a frame for the beautiful blue ocean. It is also said that you can get the best view of the sunset from this beach.

If you are in a gorgeous place like Miyakojima then you do not want to miss out on snorkelling with colourful fish.

If you are going to Araguska Beach then there is another beach close by that you can go to that is known for being a snorkelling spot. That beach is called the Yoshino Beach. This snorkelling spot is known for having colourful fish and huge coral reef. This beach is also popular because this is also the nesting ground of sea turtles. So during a high tide you are likely to see turtle swimming so you can swim alongside of them. But as these turtles are sensitive creatures make sure to not bother them.
