Explore an underground wonderland of caves


While Okinawa is known for its beautiful beaches, there are more than 600 limestone caves in the islands. The largest, on Okinawa's main island, is Gyokusendo. It stretches 5,000 meters, with over 1 million stalactites. Entirely set on a coral reef, the cave is filled with stunning blue pools and waterfalls. You can explore a section of Gyokusendo with English-speaking guides.
