Best of Okinawa
Okinawa is part of the Southwest Islands, a chain of sunny coral reef islands that make up the southernmost part of Japan, and offer a relaxing vibe perfect for holiday. Plan to explore the outdoors on your visit here: most islands offer diving, snorkelling, whale watching and more along their beaches. Visit lush forests and peaks on northern Yakushima, or head south to white sand beaches and laid-back towns of Okinawa and Miyako-jima.
Many ferry operators connect from Okinawa Island to several smaller islands. Plan in advance to avoid backtracking. On Okinawa Island public buses run regularly, with timetables available in both English and Japanese. Taxis are available, too. For added flexibility, hire your own car – but you must obtain an International Driver’s License before entering Japan. Start your holiday on the right note when you book your Okinawa flights with Cathay Dragon today.
