Okinawa Beach Bisesaki where you can swim with tropical fishes [with videos]


Speaking of Okinawa, the beautiful beach! You want to swim in a beautiful sea. If possible, you’d like to swim with tropical fish. I will introduce you the beautiful beach recommended in Okinawa where you can swim with tropical fishes. First of all I will introduce “Bisesaki Beach". It is a natural beach near Churaumi Aquarium and Bise Fukugi Namiki. Because it is with the videos which are actually swimming, you can understand the state of Bisesaki Beach. If you want to swim with tropical fish in Okinawa sea, Bisesaki Beach is recommended. You can swim with tropical fish just snorkeling. There are many coral reefs just beyond the coast and tropical fish are swimming, so you can easily swim with tropical fish with snorkeling! My daughter in the second grade of elementary school also swims over and over so it is safe for tourists with children to swim safely. In fact, foreign tourists and Japanese tourists are also swimming a lot.

Please see the videos on Bisesaki Beach swimming with tropical fish

First of all, please watch the videos actually swimming rather than a picture rather than a word. These videos was taken while swimming with a smartphone. Since one hand always occupies with a smartphone, there is a camera shake. In addition sometimes not in focus well. Since it is not possible to operate the touch panel of the smartphone underwater, please understand. Although the level is different from a professional underwater photographer, still I think you can feel realistic that I was actually swimming.

How about it? Because I am swimming with snorkeling, the breathing sound and the sound of water as it is actually swimming are intact. You can see many classic tropical fish swimming like Blue dameselfish, Red snapper and Paracanthurus. You can see a lot of corals and tropical fish that are swimming around the coral. The place to start to dive is about 3 ~ 4 m in depth, but the other places are about the depth below the knee, about 50 cm. Even beginners can safely swim if you have a life jacket. So it is okay you do not worry if your legs do not reach.

Next is a video swimming towards another direction. Bisesaki Beach has many coral reefs just off the coast and you can swim with the tropical fish inhabited by the coral reef. If you have underwater glasses, snorkel and marine shoes, you can easily swim with tropical fish. Since Bisesaki Beach is a natural beach, there are many coral reefs and rocks, and if you do not have marine shoes you will get injured.

Finally, please see the state of the tropical fish swimming in a coral reef in another place near the coast. I think that this is probably a kind of blue coral, but a bit of fingers are reflected, that is charming there. . . Because the water depth of this place is about 1 m, children can safely swim.

The range of Bisesaki Beach introduced on this page is like this. It is a range near the coast. Next time I will introduce videos around the Bisesaki beach near the reef and the south side.

Notes on swimming at Bisesaki Beach

Bisesaki beach is not a dangerous beach, but it is still a natural beach so there are notes I want to let you know in order to enjoy the sea of Okinawa safely. In order to enjoy the sea of Okinawa safely, please pay attention to the following points.

1. Let's prepare exercise

Feeling rises in the sea of Okinawa, you suddenly swim and my legs stick. Not only does this hurt, you feel quite dented. In order not to do so, let's get into the sea by doing a preparatory movement properly.

2. Attention to sunburn

The sunlight in Okinawa is quite amazing. The amount of ultraviolet rays is about ten times that of Japan main island! Swimming for 1 or 2 hours will pretty get sunburned. You can not prevent sunblocks alone. You can not be relieved even in a cloudy sky. As you are swimming, you are wet in the water, so you do not notice the burning on the sun. So I'd recommend swimming in clothes like Rush guards. It is stretchy and easy to move, it is perfect for swimming in the sea as it dries quickly. It also serves to prevent scratches. A woman makes it difficult to see the body line.

3. Attention to scratches and cuts by coral

Bisesaki Beach is a natural beach, so coral reefs and rocks are natural as it is. So swimming may cause injuries such as scratches or cuts. Especially because the feet are easy to get hurt, I recommend you to wear Marine shoes and swim. Marine shoes are the best because sandals will take off. Since you can buy it at around 1,000 yen, please prepare for injury prevention.

4. If not good at swimming and children should wear life jackets

The sea has high tide and low tide, depending on the time, the water depth is different even in the same place. At low tide, the water depth may be 1 m or less, but 2 m or more at high tide. Even at low tide, there are places where legs can not reach depending on the location. Even floating bags are okay, but Life jackets are the best to swim with tropical fish with underwater glasses on.

5. If you want to shoot underwater videos with smartphones, there are items like this

The underwater videos introduced on this page were taken with a smartphone. I shot a normal smartphone with a Waterproof case. If you have a waterproof case like the picture below, everyone can easily shoot underwater videos. Because it can be used in the sea or in the pool, it is perfect for the summer leisure! However, in the water, the touch panel of the smartphone can not be used at all. This can not be helped. . . . As a precaution, you had better use waterproof tests with tissue before use.

6. Attention to the flow of the tide

The sea repeats high tide from low tide to low tide from high tide at roughly 12 hour cycle. In the case of low tide from high tide the tide draws, so the water depth gradually becomes shallow. Just as seawater draws, it flows in a direction away from the coast. Please note that the water depth is deep in the middle of the flowing direction. The flow is pretty fast flowing. It is a flow faster than swimming speed. Indeed, I also picked up some children who are running away by the rhythm. But Since the depth of water is shallow, it will not be washed off the coast . Please do not worry.

Attention to the flow of the tide

At high tide from low tide is the reverse flow. Tide is good. The link destination is Naha's data, but the time of the tide level does not change so much depending on the location, so you recommend you check in advance.

7. If you want to know more about the beautiful beaches of Okinawa, these books are recommended

I introduce the books that I actualy bought as reference. As for "Okinawa beach great 505", I often admire that he has studied only this much, and many beaches of Okinawa are introduced with photos. "Okinawa Snorkeling Guide" is featured 50 points carefully selected for beginners to enjoy. I also want to swim all seas. I will do my best to make it possible.
