Highs & Lows

Hiked to the peak in Fukaji Island which boosts an spectacular view overlooking the entire Kerema Islands

Ended up booking high speed ferry for double the price with a bumpy ride.Definitely not worth it!

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Given that we were tight on budget we could have checked the ferry schedule from Naha to avoid taking the expensive ones and saved some time too!

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We did have face a bit of rain so it didn't foresee it coming as weather is a bit unpredictable

    Avoid travelling in busy times as flights can be expensive and be as flexible as possible. Each of the Islands are just too beautiful to plan coming back in a fixed schedule

  • Packing tips?

    Light clothes as most of time is spent around the beaches but do carry a good torch as it's quite handy at night while camping

    Beautiful deer in Aka islands were a treat to eyes
