Discover Japan from a new perspective at this Okinawan marine park
This cluster of more than 30 islets and rock reefs is dense with coral and alive with fish, humpback whales, and sea turtles, making it a favorite spot for divers and snorkelers. Whale-watching tours and surfing classes are among the other popular ways to explore this park.
The majority of this park is in the ocean, with a scattering of mostly uninhabited islands. Some offer hotels and fresh seafood restaurants for those keen to take their time discovering the turquoise depths of the East China Sea.
