"Snorkeling" Snorkeling Okinawa Tip by loliver

Snorkeling Okinawa, Okinawa: 4 reviews and 10 photos


Okinawa has beautiful beaches that offer great access to coral reefs and exotic fish. The water is warm and the fish are very plentiful, within minutes of swimming out, I guarantee that you will see more aquatic wildlife than most places in the world. Both the Pacific Ocean side as well as the China Sea side offer the same type of snorkeling environment. The island is small, but getting around can take some time. Some of the best areas to snorkel are not necessarily the most visited. My advice is to drive along either of the coastal highways (highway 58 or highway 330/329) and find a spot that interests you. I found many different areas that seemed not to be 'tourist areas', but were great to just get out and enjoy.
