Minna Island is a small crescent island in Okinawa located between the Motobu peninsula and Ie island, close to Churaumi Aquarium. The majority of dive sites here can accommodate both beginner and advanced divers. The topography of the dive area is sandy bottom, with the sand being so white that on sunny days it gives the water a characteristic blue color, which is truly spectacular. In addition, the corals at Minna Island are well preserved and are home to countless coral fish, rays, gardel eels and turtles. Nearby Minna Island is located Sesoko Island, the topography of which is very different but equally beautiful. The ocean floor at Sesoko is rocky with a number of crevasses and swim-throughs.
