Not much to see or do on this island except the views near the bridge looking back to Miyakojima. There's a car park with a few small shops selling souvenirs, ice-cream etc and an observation deck which gives great views. A short walk down to a beautiful beach for more photo opportunities!

Not a lot going on but some of the best white sand private beaches we have found! We just stopped along the side of the road and walked down to the beach to stay a while!

If you don't know where to snorkel around Miyakojima, go to either Irabu or here at Ikema. There's an unbelievable coral reef like a fabulous coral garden. It's very shallow so you can see like if you were SCUBA diving.

Loved the colors of the water, the melty ice cream and the road side stands. We will visit the beaches next time, but didn't have the time on this trip.
