Furuzamami Beach is located on the island of Zamami which is located around an hour's high speed ferry ride from the main island of Okinawa. Most would agree it is well worth the journey and the beach is regularly rated as one of Japan's finest.

This tropical beach is graced with a wide, gently curving stretch of powder white sand fringed with coral reefs in the crystal clear water. Being in a relatively sheltered position this makes Furuzamami a popular spot for snorkelling and you don't have to go far before you are in a world of tropical fish and fascinating coral.

The beach has a relatively wild feel with a backdrop of tropical greenery and views over to Tokashi Island. There isn't much in the way of development here, although there are plenty of facilities. The one blight on this otherwise pristine beach is the unused waste disposal plant at the northern end of the beach, although this hardly spoils the view.
