Unwind on Minna Island off Okinawa’s Motobu Peninsula. This small crescent-shaped island has many fun water activities to enjoy including snorkeling, parasailing, banana boat rides and more.

Relax on Minna Beach, grab a bite to eat just down the road and explore other parts of this incredible getaway. Just off the coast, uncover what’s beneath the crystal blue waters with a refreshing snorkeling tour.
