We are a Spanish-Swedish couple travelling to Okinawa with our 4 year old kid in the end of October. We will stay one week in Ginowan since I will attend a conference there. Afterwards we want to explore Okinawa for 8 days and we are a bit confused arranging the trip planning. We would like to stay for 4-5 nights in a nice island where we can find good beaches, have a good Okinawa cultural experience, practice snorkelling, and probably surfing. We are hesitating between staying those nights in Miyakojima or Kerama islands. We see that the plane tickets to Miyakojima are a bit expensive and to Kerama islands we just need to take a ferry, but we still hesitate since we see good reviews about Miyakojima. What do you think? is it worthy to spend the plane tickets money and stay 4-5 nights in Miyakojima?
We were thinking to stay the last 2 nights in Naha, is it enough with 2 days to explore Naha? An option could be to stay 4 nights in Miyakojima and 3 nights in Naha, then maybe we could include a one day trip to Kerama islands. Opinions are welcome, thanks in advance!
