At Sunayama Beach, observe the arch-shaped rock formed by centuries of crashing waves cutting a natural gate into the coral wall. The arch has become a symbol for this pristine beach, along with its white powdery sand and emerald green waters. Just 4 km (2.5 mi) away from the main city, the beach serves as a haven for water sport activities, as well as resting and soaking up the sun. Take advantage of some of the world's clearest waters--with 50-60 m (160-195 ft) visibility--by diving in and exploring the various coral species and marine life below the surface.

  • Gorgeous but very small and not swimmable the day I went. Very powerful waves on a little bit rainy day in March. I could barely put my feet into without the current trying to pull me out as the waves crashed against the rocks. It was a nice bike ride from the main town, only 1 hill up
  • One of the best beaches on the island, the water was clear but I wouldn’t say it was calm. I was lucky and went when there wasn’t many tourists.
