Ie Island

At a glance

Located about 9 km northwest of the Motobu peninsula on the main island of Okinawa, Ie Island is just a 30-minute ferry ride away, making day trips easy and convenient. The island’s main industries include leaf tobacco production and Iejima beef. Ie Island also features many war and historical landmarks, and actively hosts school trips at local guesthouses.

The south end of the island has a long and calm sandy beach, while the north end has 60-meter sheer rock cliffs, illustrating the many different views that are possible on the island. The uniquely-shaped 170-meter high Mt. Gusuku (known also by the nickname Ijimatacchu), which can also be seen from the main island of Okinawa, can be climbed using a steep staircase. The view from the peak is a must as it affords a 360 degree panorama of the island and surrounding ocean.

Easter lily bloom every year from April to May, when the island plays host to a lily festival that attracts huge numbers of visitors. A rental motorcycle is recommended for getting around as some places make bicycle travel a bit difficult. The island has a huge number of sweets, foods, and alcohol made locally that make perfect souvenirs. The port also offers shopping opportunities. If you have the time, it’s definitely worth staying on the island a night or two.
