Okinawa by AsiaRoom and Keys.me

Aka-Jima Island is one of the most pristine, and cleanest beaches you are likely to ever encounter. This island will wow you and is a must visit spot near Okinawa.

 

Okinawa’s Secret Place

 

This island is off the coast of Okinawa. Located in the Kerama islands, the island connects to Geruma-Jima island by bridge. This island is quite popular for people from Okinawa, and the mainland. Arriving to Akajima Island, one would want to take the High-Speed Ferry from Naha City in Okinawa. The ferry ride is about an hour, but does stop at Zumami Island on the way.

 

Getting Around on The Island

 

Getting around on the island is the fun part, rent a bicycle, a kayak or walk. This beach you will no doubt appreciate the locals, and the Japanese people. The island does not see many foreign tourists which makes for an amazing holiday stop.

 

Best Times to Visit

 

Aka-Jima Beach, is best visited during the summer months. From October through April, when the temperatures are nice and hot. The surf this time of year is incredible and you are likely to experience a few pros on the boards. This time of year, tropical storms are active, but that is normal for beach havens, right?

 

Snorkeling and diving the Coral Reefs
