Hama Island - the phantom island
Hama Island is an uninhabited island located a 30 min. boat ride away from Ishigaki Island.
The island is composed of a sandy beach and disappears during high tide, which is why it is known as the "phantom island"! The island is surrounded by the ocean on all sides, it feels as though you are floating in the sea!
Try snorkeling in the sea of the Iriomote-Ishigaki National Park, which has the largest coral reef in Japan! You will feel like a fish as you snorkel in the crystal clear blue sea! Your guide will provide thorough instructions so even those who are not good at swimming can participate!
