    Kuroshima Island is only 30 minutes away from Ishigaki Island. It is called “Heart Island” because of the shape of the island. Why don’t you forget the hustle and bustle of the city in a peaceful place with more cows than people, and shorten the distance between you and your partner in an extraordinary environment while cycling?

    Cycling course

    Iko Pier
    Iko Pier is a shallow bridge that stretches to the north of Kuroshima Island. It is registered as a National Tangible Cultural Property and is 354 meters long, longer than Tokyo Tower, and the close proximity to the sea makes you feel like you are walking on the surface of the sea.

    Kuroshima Observatory
    The vast pasture and ocean seen from this simple 10-meter-high observatory is truly a sight to behold! On a clear day, you can take photos with your partner with Taketomi Island and Iriomote Island in the background.

    Kuroshima Research Institute
    Sea turtles are said to bring good luck. The beach where these turtles come to lay their eggs is the Nishi-no-hama beach in the northwest part of the island near Kuroshima Port. If you can’t see them, don’t worry. You can always visit the Kuroshima Research Institute, which breeds sea turtles and other creatures around Kuroshima.
