Welcome to Kerama islands

That said, since being declared a national park (Kerama Shotō Kokuritsu Kōen, 慶良間諸島国立公園) in 2014, their increased popularity with tour groups and day-trippers from Naha means that during summer holidays, crowded ferries and beaches can make you feel like you've been transplanted into a pan-Asian Spring Break, instead of an idyllic island paradise.

Each of the three main islands – Zamami-jima, Aka-jima and Tokashiki-jima – can be visited as day trips from Naha, but to savour the slow-paced pleasures, visit in shoulder season and spend a night in a rustic island hostel or minshuku.
