Hamahiga Island

After exploring the Katsuren Castle Ruins we decided to keep driving until we reached one of the little islands that surround Okinawa. It was our first time driving around this side of the island and it was soo dreamy. Although it was an overcast afternoon the sea was all gorgeous shades of blue. We made a pit stop at a rest stop and then we were off to Hamahiga island. We walked along a beach and dipped our feet into the Pacific Ocean. It was a fun, relaxing afternoon with my love.
