Minna Island (Miyako)

At a glance

Minna Island, which belongs to Tarama Village, is a small island situated 62 km west of Miyako Island and 8 km north of Tarama Island.
The island was home to more than 200 people in the past, but today only one household remains after a scheduled relocation program to Miyako Island was started in 1961 after a major typhoon struck. The entire island is a pasture today, home to free range cows. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and white sand beaches, making it perfectly suited for those who want to sit back and relax with nothing around.
There are two cottages on the island that can be rented by the night (3,000 yen per person per night) and camping is also allowed. The only way to reach the island is aboard the charter boat Shirahama. To stay overnight and to take the charter you need to book your spot with island resident Mr. Miyaguni. The island has no stores, so be sure to load up on food and other essentials on Tarama Island before heading over.
