Miibaru Beach


This shallow pristine beach stretches about two kilometers along the Pacific coast of southern Okinawa. The popular glass-bottom boat operates throughout the year. The beach is surrounded by coral reefs, and rarely experiences rough waters, even on windy days; the boat is always available except during storm or typhoon weather. A 30 percent discount coupon for the glass-bottom boat is available on the beach's official website (Click on the link, print out the web page, and bring it with you or show the coupon with your smartphone).

During low tide in the summer, you can walk to the reef about 1 km away. You can find crabs and gobies in the rocky pools, sea urchins and shellfish hiding in the shade of the rocks, and also enjoy digging clams.
