Kerama Shoto National Park

On March 5, 2014 (Coral Day), this was designated as the 31st national park. The majority of this national park consists of a marine landscape, featuring highly transparent ocean waters, a diverse and rich concentration of coral reefs, breeding grounds for the humpback whale, white sand beaches, sea cliffs with unique flora, a range of vistas with the ocean and land interlinked, and much more. Excellently positioned just 35-50 minutes by speedboat from mainland Okinawa (Tomari Port, Naha), the transparent blue waters, called the “Kerama Blue,” are where you can enjoy diving and snorkeling in summer, and whalewatching in winter.
