The beautiful Ama Beach is located on Zamami Island, one of the pristine Kerama islands just west of Okinawa. It takes between one and two hours to get to Zamami from Naha on the main island, but it is more than worth it.

Visitors to the island tend to gravitate to Furuzamami Beach, which is located about 10 minutes walk from the ferry terminal. Head in the opposite direction and you will reach the equally stunning, but much quieter Ama Beach.Here a generous stretch of white powder sand is lapped by the crystal clear clear turquoise sea with a backdrop of verdant green tropical greenery.

With such a beautiful setting it is enough for many visitors to just relax on the beach and take it all in. However, there is another reason people visit Ama Beach - sea turtles. This is one of the best places in Okinawa to spot them as they gather to feed on the seagrass meadow in the shallows just offshore.
