In less than an hour away from the main island of Okinawa, one can find the beautiful yet quiet Zamami Island.
The sea is extremely clear and the area has a very beachy vibe. The locals are very friendly, too. Only 800 people live full time on the island and there are just a few restaurants and hotels. If you are looking for a place to really get away from hustle and bustle of Okinawa and you are not planning on a luxury vacation, Zamami Island is the place to be.
