Mibaru is one of the finest beaches on the island of Okinawa itself. The long stretch of white sand leading into the crystal clear turquoise ocean will is a familiar them with the beaches in Japan's tropical south, but what makes Mibaru stand out are the various rock formations along its length. At lower tides these greenery-topped rocks form part of the landscape of rockpools and coral beyond the sshoreline, whilst as the tide comes in they jut straight out of the sea like small sea stacks.

The waters off the beach here are shallow and protected by a series of coral reefs. This makes for perfect snorkeling, but if you don't fancy that, but don't want to miss ou there is also a glass-bottomed boat that does a regular 20 minute trip from the beach.

Mibaru beach isn't far from the city of Nanjō and there are are also plenty of facilities locally.
