Let’s Go to Tokashiki Island to Meet Sea Turtle!

Tokashiki Island is one of the Kerama Islands, located 40 km west of Okinawa Main Islnd, with its population of 800.
The island is accessible by a 70-minute large ferry or a 35-minute express ferry from Tomari Port in Naha.  Tokashiki Island is spectacular with crystal-clear blue waters.

One of the recommended beaches on Tokashiki Island is Tokashiku Beach.
You could use a bus or a rental bike to Tokashiku Beach.

What the most appealing about Tokashiku Beach do you think?
You can meet a sea turtle at a higher rate!
Not only one sea turtle, there seems that at least several sea turtles inhabit the shallow waters on the beach. 

I could meet sea turtles almost every day while I was staying on the island for writing this story. As you can spot a sea turtle even in the not so deep area, I had no difficulty taking pictures of it while snorkeling.
Sea turtles sometimes swim up to the surface.  Every time I find it, I was extremely thrilled.

The clear, transparent water is just perfect.
No wonder the Kerama Islands has been designated as a national park.
Why don’t you have an exciting experience of meeting a sea turtle in the marvelous transparent water?
