Miyako Islands

Okinawa’s premier resort destination offers unforgettable ocean adventure

The Miyako Islands are a group of small, mostly inhabited islands, surrounding the larger, central Miyako Island. Many of the smaller islands are connected to Miyako Island via bridges. Surrounded by some of Okinawa’s largest coral reefs, the Miyako Islands are a mecca for diving and snorkeling enthusiasts. The waters around the islands are translucent and inviting, and tour operators offer many exciting ways to enjoy the ocean, from glass-bottomed boat trips and parasailing to kayak and SUP tours. The Miyako Islands abound with beautiful beaches, resort accommodations, and chic vacation rentals.
