Lovely little island, easily explored in a few hours either on foot or by bicycle. I did both. After walking around the main village, I decided to rent a bicycle to explore the more rural areas further afield. The main village is lined with narrow...More

We rented bicycles for the day for 1000 JPY and pedaled around the perimeter of the island. There's lots of side paths where you can tidepool or find a quiet place to eat your packed lunch. Bring lots of frozen water to keep you hydrated...More

Beautiful, natural island with sites almost untouched by people. You can get here by bus from Naha City, even though google maps and possibly your hotel concierge will tell you it's not possible. Take the 38 bus from Naha City twords Shikiya. It will take...More

Most tourist visit here for day trip, because you can see most tourist spots within two hours by riding bicycle. However I recommend you to stay here for over night. This whole island is big power spot and better spend time to look around.

We spent the better part of a day on Kudaka Island, primarily to see the ancient sites as part of research on old Okinawan culture. The ferry ride was straightforward and we were able to walk the length of the island as well as stop...More

Worth a day-trip from Naha. Due to a ban on development, most of it is unspoiled.. you can have whole beaches to yourself. The east side of the island is bordered by a coral reef, creating a very pleasant lagoon. There are bike rental shops...More
