Kabira Bay, the most photographed sight on the island, remains noted for its pristine white sands, blue waters, and lush vegetation. Although it's not safe to swim here due to strong currents and the presence of jelly fish, you can enjoy the picturesque vista from land, or take a ride on a glass-bottomed boat to observe the coral reefs and manta rays from the surface of the water.

Kabira Bay Reviews
You are not allowed to swim on Kabira Bay. The popular thing is to go on a glass bottom boat ride to see the coral reef. There’s also nice spot to take pics from above. The place is beautiful, sure... more »
What a great spot to take a boat ride. It is also an awesome place to go for a walk and snap some beautiful photos! more »
One of the most popular tourist attractions on Ishigaki. Easy to reach by public bus. The white, sandy beach serves as a foil for the crystal clear water, which is light green to light blue in colour due to the reflection of the sky. No swimming. The sightseeing boats offers tours to see observe the coral reef. The bay is next-level beauty.
A beautiful beach, variety of colours of the water, crystal clear. Easy access, viewing point. The most touristic beach on the island, so you have boats everywhere. Still not overcrowded at that time (January). Barely shops and restaurants, prepare for that. Drinks are available, most people come by boat, we came by bike. Must see and worth it!
