VIDEO: Exploring Okinawa: Day trip to Sesoko Island

Stripes Okinawa

Sesoko-jima is a small island with a circumference of only eight kilometers. If you have been to Expo Park on Okinawa’s main island, you’ve probably spotted this island off Motobu Peninsula’s coast. To get to Sesoko, cross the Sesoko Ohashi, a 762-meter-long bridge.

This island is a good destination for those who are looking for a relaxing and cozy place to spend a day. Sesoko Beach has a sandy shore where visitors enjoy a panoramic view of the crystal blue waters and Ie and Minna islands in the distance.

Sesoko Island is also known for its many fancy cafés and eateries, so make plans for a nice lunch.

Another area on the island, Anchihama, presents a nice view of the Sesoko Ohashi bridge and Okinawa’s main island.
