Description

But fun at the beach isn't the only thing that Miyakojima has to offer. See a completely different side of this tropical paradise on this night tour!

Your guide, a local, will take you to the most optimal spots for spotting the area's endemic wildlife — best-kept secrets that only the locals know! You'll also get ample time for stargazing.
