Zamami island

A peaceful and quiet island near Okinawa

By Tinka Weener   Jun 3, 2016

In less than an hour away from the main island of Okinawa, one can find the beautiful yet quiet Zamami Island.

The sea is extremely clear and the area has a very beachy vibe. The locals are very friendly, too. Only 800 people live full time on the island and there are just a few restaurants and hotels. If you are looking for a place to really get away from hustle and bustle of Okinawa and you are not planning on a luxury vacation, Zamami Island is the place to be.

I spent Christmas there some years ago. I snorkeled in a wet suit and it's like a giant aquarium. I waded at the beach. It wasn't cold. Awesome place!
