  • Went scuba diving and it was GREAT. Saw 2 lobsters, a stingray, puffer fish, water temperature was great and nice and clear.  more »
  • The sea is very beautiful. I also like Okinawa and sometimes go, but the color of the sea and the color of the sand is lighter in Okinawa, and i think this one is clear because it is darker.
