This dreamy beach holiday takes you to the Yaeyama Islands of Okinawa, the southernmost prefecture of Japan, where you can choose to relax and refresh or explore the island’s lush landscapes. Ishigaki Island, the cultural center of Okinawa’s Yaeyama Island Chain, is famed for its dazzling turquoise waters that are ideal for diving, snorkeling and other ocean adventures.
Okinawa has had an eventful history including its rise as a thriving trading nation under the Ryūkyū Kingdom, annexation by Japan, and occupation by US forces. Today, it retains a unique culture, a laid-back island vibe, and the most beautiful beaches in Japan. Its white sands and lushly forested interior provide the perfect haven for a relaxing and stylish beach holiday.
Especially perfect during the summer months (from April to October), you can spend your days sun worshipping on the sandy beaches or set off on optional land- or water-based adventures to explore the spectacular coral reefs. This 5-day, self-guided Okinawa beach holiday leaves plenty of freedom and time to explore the islands at your pace. Whatever your desire, we’ll work with you to tailor your perfect escape and help you find your fantasy island vacation.
