Welcome to Kume-jima

While there are some mountainous areas offering spectacular views, the island's 63.5 sq km of terrain is mostly flat and covered with sugar cane. Its shoreline boasts a few lovely beaches and the mother of all sandbars off its east coast. There's also a decent selection of interesting historic sites, vistas and activities beyond snorkelling and diving, making Kumejima a worthy overnight or two-night stay.

For a moment at least, you might not want to leave.
