How to enjoy the sea at 17end
Almost every customers said "omg, What a beautiful!" when they come into the reef from dark blue outside sea.
Let me tell you how to enjoy the coral reef at 17end.
Scenery with 17 end
There is a strange landscape that the guidance light of RW 17 which is said to be "the most beautiful jetty in Japan" is protruding on a beautiful coral reef. For airplanes that take off and take off from time to time, you also become part of the landscape.
Calm wind and overflowing sun
Spring, summer and autumn has more calm days, so it will be easier to go to 17end. Stopping the ship near the reef and to blown by breeze make you happy. Enjoy snorkeling, when you got cold the sun make you warm.
You can have the beautiful see all to yourself
The diver does not come to the shallow sea of the 17end. This sea is far away from the main port of Miyakojima and few visitors come because here's beauty still isn't famous. Let's have excellent corals and clear sea all to yourself !
All white sand and coral
When you are snorkeling you may notice that your shadow is on the bottom of the water. All the sea bottom is covered with sand made from coral. The vicinity of RW 17 is a white sandy land, and coral increases gradually toward the offshore reef.
