Are you the active type? Then Iki Island is for you! Spring is a great time to go, and one must-visit place is the uninhabited island, Tatsunoshima, located just off the northern coast of Iki.
Join a 40-minute boat cruise (late Mar. ~ Nov. 30) around the island or land on the shore to enjoy hiking and swimming. Sparkling sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, and impressive views await!
So much to see and do!
