Very Beautiful Beach With Less Crowd on Tokashiki Island

Speaking of Tokashiki Island, Tokashiku Beach and Aharen Beach are famous; however,
the local people introduced me an especially beautiful natural beach, Hijuishi Beach.
It is situated on the western side of Aharen Community. Thanks to that very few tourists visit there, the beach has the best and the brightest waters.
“This beach does not have lifeguards, so please swim at your own risk,” the local people said.
Also posted at the entrance to the beach is a sign that reads “Please do not swim alone. Please enjoy swimming with your guide or friend.”
Colorful tropical fish such as suzumedai (pearl-spot chromis) and chochouo (Oriental butterflyfish), etc. swim in alluring corals in crystal blue water.
Good swimmers will enjoy diving straight off the several-meter-deep quay wall which has no coral reefs and is arch-shaped.
(* Please be careful of water current such as rising tide and ebb tide when you swim.)
If you would like to avoid a crowded beach during high season and spend some time on a quiet beach in a leisurely pace, Hijuishi Beach is perfect for you.
It would be also fun to enjoy walking along the beach picking up seashells and finding a hermit crab.
And on top of that, Hijuishi Beach is located on the western side of the island, so you will enjoy a stunning sunset.
The Aharen Community is so small that you can go around on foot very easily, so t would be nice to go further down to the beach
Would you like to visit such a quintessential perfect beach?
