Kondoi beach is on a small island called Taketomijima, which located around 6km away from the west of Ishigakijima. Kondoi beach preserves the pristine beauty of Okinawa; the waters are transparent clear, making the beach a miracle of nature. Emerald green water shining between snow-white sand and cobalt blue sky. The contrast between these bright colors is really a miracle. You can go swimming during the high tide and it is safe even for children. In low tides, the beach is quite shallow but the water never recedes completely.
Kondoi beach is located on the westernmost of Taketomijima Island and it is a beautiful crescent shaped. The beach faced west, so the sunset here is especially beautiful. You can also admire the view of islands such as Iriomete-jima, Kuroshima, Kohamajima and Yaeyama.
If you walk toward South for 10 min, you’ll reach Kaiji Beach where star shaped sand can be found. As you can’t swim at this beach, so we recommend come here before go swimming at Kondoi beach.
The beach is beautiful and easy access. Actually if you take a high-speed ferry and cycling from Ishigakijima Island at Yaeyama, you can get there in 1 hour. The beach has all necessary facilities: shower, toilets etc. You can rent parasols and there is an area for picnics. Definitely visit the beach if you are staying on Taketomijima or Ishigaki.
Since Taketomijima is a very small island, access to Kondoi Beach is very easy. About 2.5 km from Taketomi Port, 1.5km from the village center. Walking is possible but renting a bicycle is recommended.
