Okinawa seems to be the heaven on earth in the summer, being blessed by numerous magnificent beaches.
One Of The Best Beaches In Japan
After a bit of hike over the mountain-like sand dunes you are greeted by pristine white sands that are caressed by brilliantly clear turquoise tropical waters with over fifty meters (160 feet) of visibility. It is a lovely place for soaking up the sunlight or taking a refreshing swim. Sunayama beach on Miyako-jima island in Okinawa prefecture is one of the most beautiful beaches on earth. Its name means sand mountain beach.
The iconic symbol of this beach is the Sunayama arch, which makes a graceful entrance gate to this stunning location.
This island is home to over one hundred species of coral, sea turtles, manta rays, whale sharks and host of vividly colorful tropical fishes. It is a little piece of heaven on earth.
