The Kerama Shoto National Park is an island-dotted marine park west of Naha. There are four main islands; Tokashiki, Zamami, Geruma and Aka Island. It’s a popular destination for day trippers, being only a short ferry-ride away from the main island.

The islands are surrounded by white sandy beaches and pretty coral reefs, where you’ll encounter amazing biodiversity.

Between January and April, the surrounding waters become breeding grounds for humpback whales and all year you’ll find Kerama deer wandering around most of the islands.

The Kerama islands are between 30km and 50km west of Naha on the southern tip of Okinawa’s main island.
