Yubu Island Tours

Yubu Island
While the pebble beaches of Yubu Island may not be ideal for traditional sunbathing, this hidden paradise offers travelers a uniquely authentic island experience that is not to be missed. Visitors can explore the land aboard old-school ox carts and navigate the shallow waters, crystal clear fjords and lush foliage with the help of a local guide and his powerful water buffalo. 

In addition to Yubu’s untouched shores, visitors can explore picturesque walking trails and well-manicured botanical gardens, all while experiencing the old-world wonder that lies just beyond scenic Okinawa. 

Practical Info

The island is accessible by car and is about 40 minutes from Kanpira-so. Although vehicles are not allowed on the island it’s possible to walk across the shallow fjord between Yubu and Irimote.
