At every beach in the island, the color of coral white sand and cobalt ocean-blue create a beautiful contrast. You can also enjoy aquatic wonders by snorkeling. Kumejima Island is well-known as a diver’s paradise. You can see a variety of tropical fishes, whale sharks, dolphins, mantas, and parent-children humpback whales. There is a bus route that circles around the island so you can travel leisurely while enjoying the beautiful ocean view. You can also visit other attractions including the Uesuke Residence, a designated Important Cultural Property, and Ue Castle.
