There are 4 overlooks of the kujukushima (99 islands). You need to drive. It takes about 15 minutes from sea pearl resort to come here. Take the boat trip before you come here.

Great for watching the sunset. There was a little hotel with a restaurant about a 5 min walk from the observatory with a panoramic window view of the islands. Super romantic! And the city view at nice is amazing!
