It was breathtaking. i highly recommend snorkeling, i cannot describe in words how beautiful and pristine the water was, and it's like a dream on earth. The fish are absolutely beautiful, so many different colours, a true definition of earthly beauty was on this island.

How much is it to rent an umbrella? Can you rent chairs? Is there a place to eat on the island? Is it safe to leave belongings on the beach while I snorkel or are there lockers to rent? Thanks in advance.

I realize you went three years ago to Minna-Jima island but would appreciate any help you can provide. I am TDY here only through the first weekend in June. Kadena ITT does not have trips going there yet. Do you know how I would find directions to the port? We don't have a GPS in English and don't have Google maps...
