If you fancy a little solitude, you'll find picturesque empty beaches in the coves on the other sides of the island, away from the village. The best beaches, however, are on the islets of Gahi-jima (嘉比島) and Agenashiku-jima (安慶名敷島), which are located about a kilometre south of the port. Ringed by delightful white-sand beaches, they are perfect for a half-day Robinson Crusoe experience.

The tourist information office can help arrange boat tours (¥1500 per person round trip).
