This small islet off the coast of the southernmost part of Okinawa's main island has a pristine beach with crystal clear waters. More than half of this inhabited islet is covered with white sand, and you can walk along the coast to make a loop in about 15 minutes. The circumference varies from 200m to 400m, depending on the tide.
There are no facilities other than toilets, but you can have an amazingly relaxing time if you bring a beach parasol. Once in the waters, you will see a swarm of fish swimming beside you in a friendly manner. The islet is access by a 15-minute boat ride from Chinen Marine Leisure Center.

The best place to swim ever in Okinawa!
Okinawa has this access to the ocean in every side of the Island and one the islands they has is the Komaka Island where you have to take a boat for 2500yen (back and forth) which will allow you to stay for like 3hrs.
You can rent tent especially if you like to go in the afternoon. We spent our noon from 12nn to 3pm at the island and I never regret getting tan because the Island itself is worth it! The sand, water, rocks, fishes and birds (yes birds!!!)
It was so much fun and I am hoping to get back here soon. It was so nice.

Not a campground. Short ride from the marine center. Mostly for snorkeling. No shade or facilities on the island except for the toilets. Life guards are on duty. Bring all the food and water you will need. No snorkeling unless you have a life vest.

It is pre-fed, so if you come to the beach, the fish will come to you!
Life jacket by rental before boarding a regular flight? You can borrow it, but you can borrow it and float on the surface of the water like a drowning and just watch it underwater, it's a fish paradise like you see on TV!
On the contrary, I tried swimming to the offshore, but there weren't many fish off the coast.
It depends on the weather whether you leave the boat, but it is highly recommended during the season when you enter the sea.
