Okinawa: Zamami Island
Zamami Island is the second largest and most popular of the Kerama Islands. Another island known for its pristine beaches and clear waters including Furuzamami Beach and Ama Beach – both of which are within walking distance of the island port. Zamami and the surrounding smaller islands are popular spots for snorkelling and diving, many of which can be reached by short boat rides.
From December until April, humpback whales migrate through the waters surrounding Zamami and other Kerama Islands, another big reason to visit with the best months being January to March. Most accommodation is located around the ferry terminal where you’ll find small hotels and guesthouses, hostels and a couple of upscale options. The island is also known for its spectacular sunsets with most accommodation located nearby the port, making it an easy island to visit.
