Nishihama Beach

Nishihama Beach - Okinawa

Nishihama Beach is found on Hateruma, the most southerly inhabited island in all of Japan. This remote slice of tropical paradise lives up to expectations with Nishihama consistently topping out the polls on Japan's best beaches.

Given the island is sometimes referred to as "Hateruma Blue" it is little surprise the waters are a crystal clear azure in colour. Combined with powdery white sands which seem to stretch on for ever and safe swimming it is easy to see why the beach has its reputation. 

As with many of Okinawa's best beaches there is a fringing coral reef so don't forget to bring your snorkel.
