Points near Ishigakijima, Maibara Beach. Around 3 meters of reef that has been shaped like a tree over a long period of time is a highlight. Akanehanagoi, goldfish Hanadai, and sparrow have been dancing on the top, you can see many beautiful scenes in color. In the vicinity of the reef, you can also see frogs, minokashigo, popular crustaceans. Because it is located at a depth of about 5 m, beginners can enjoy it. Also, when going to the offshore there is a drop-off of about 25 m in depth. Various courses can be enjoyed because the area range is wide.
Situated east of Zamami Island, this point is home to many green sea turtles, and if you are lucky you could see more than 10 at a time. The green sea turtle is listed on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species, and so they are in need of protection. Development has meant a loss of natural habitat for the turtles to lay their eggs, but the untouched beaches of the Kerama Islands are a vital natural habitat for the sea turtles.
