  • 2934views

There is a swimming area on Tatsunoshima - the only uninhabited island in Iki. A stunning white sand beach curved in the shape of a bow and a very clear sea extend out here. This island is accessible by boat. It bustles with many tourists because the number of services to the island increase from around mid-July to the end of August. Pleasure boats that take you around the island also operate outside the summer season. Accordingly, you can savor the cliffs, caves and other nature here.
Multilingual maps are available at the Tourist Information Center.
