Yubu Island
Destination Guide

Yubu Island is located at the sides of Iriomote Island. With a circumference of 2.1 km, Yubu Island is a tiny island formed by ocean currents that piled up the island’s sand 1.5 meter above sea level. Subtropical vegetation and colorful flowers cover the island. Only 400 meters from Iriomote island. Ride the water buffalo-drawn carriage across the shallows to Yubu. An iconic scene in this part of Okinawa.
