Beaches across the islands, including Tokashiki-jima Island’s Tokashiku Beach and Aharen Beach, Zamami-jima Island’s Furuzamami Beach and Ama Beach, and Aka-jima Island’s Nishibama Beach, offer marine sports activities and each island has observatories with fantastic outlooks over the sea. You will need to arrange accommodations due to transportaion schedules, but the Mitsushima sea bus operates four trips a day between Zamami Village/Zamami Port and Aka Port, and two trips a day to Tokashiki Village and Aharen Port. From Zamami-jima Island, you can also head over to Tokashiki-jima Island by way of Aka-jima Island. For a detailed schedule, please consult the official website of Zamami Village.
