It is connected by bridge to the islands of Geruma and Fukaji which are also easy to explore by foot, bicycle or kayak, and if you are lucky you may even see deer swimming between the three islands. From January to April the waters also attract humpback whales which provide a stunning natural spectacle adding to the natural charm of the Kerama Islands.
