Set on Taketomi island, one of the most southerly in Japan, Kondoi beach is well within the tropics. The small island is much less built up than its neighbour Ishigaki, which is the de facto capital of the Yaeyama Islands. From here you can catch a ferry which takes less than half an hour to get you over to Taketomi.

Kondoi beach is found on the most westerly point of the island and is a wide stretch of pristine white sand leading into the crystal clear emerald green waters of the ocean. Swimming here is relatively safe but the bottom is all sand so no reefs to snorkel on. It is however a great spot to relax and being west-facing this is a good place to take in the sunset as the sun drops behind the neighbouring islands.
