    Head to Okinawa for endless island adventures

    Okinawa roughly means "rope in the open sea", a fairly self-explanatory name for this long archipelago of subtropical and tropical islands, located south of mainland Japan in the shimmering East China Sea. Hugely popular among Japanese tourists, but relatively undiscovered by international visitors, the sprawling main Okinawa Island is blessed with an abundance of blissful white-sand beaches, and scattered with crumbling castles that offer a glimpse of its enthralling ancient heritage. Within easy reach you'll also find verdant primeval forests, craggy mountains and untamed mangrove swamps. With a diverse array of Okinawa holiday rentals to choose from, you're sure to find your ideal home-away-from-home.

    Aquatic adventures around Okinawa

    Okinawa's blissfully warm, crystal clear waters are a haven for scuba divers and snorkellers, with thriving, easily accessible coral reefs, around which you may spot comical clownfish or captivating hammerhead sharks. If you're more intrigued by the sensational scenery above water, you may prefer to explore a stretch of coastline by kayak or stand-up paddle board. Or for an adrenalin fix, try your hand at jet skiing, parasailing or flyboarding. If that all sounds too much like hard work, you can unwind in quintessentially Japanese style with a trip to a traditional onsen. Here you can let all your cares melt away as you bathe in mineral-rich, natural hot spring water.

    Okinawa's captivating ancient culture

    You'll find a wealth of alluring attractions practically on the doorstep of your Okinawa holiday rental. For an enthralling primer in local culture, make a beeline for Okinawa World. Its colourful centre piece is a meticulous recreation of a traditional village where you can learn all about the region's distinctive Ryukyu culture, observe the making of musical instruments and try your hand at glass-blowing. In the neighbouring Habu Park, you can get up close and personal with the enthralling Habu, a venomous snake found only on the Ryukyu islands. Nearby, you'll also find the astonishing Gyokusendo Cave. Thought to be around 300,000 years old, it's among the largest caves in the whole of Japan, packed with surreal stalactites and stalagmites.

    Sizzling summer days in Okinawa

    Okinawa is blessed with what many consider to be Japan's best weather. If you're confining yourself to Okinawa Island, its subtropical climate ensures extremely mild winters, and blissfully warm springs and autumns. Summers can be very hot, with high humidity and regular rainfall. The chain's more southern islands, such as Iriomote, have a tropical climate, making them a great choice for a spot of winter warmth.

    Jungle japes in Okinawa

    All manner of natural wonders await within easy reach of your Okinawa holiday rental. At the northernmost point of Okinawa Island sits Cape Hedo, a ruggedly spectacular coastal island that marks the point where the China Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. For the ultimate jungle adventure, embark on a trek through lush, dense rainforest to the cascading Tadake Falls. Or, if you'd like to marvel at the wonders of the surrounding waters without getting wet, head to Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium, where you can come face-to-face with awe-inspiring whale sharks and other-worldly manta rays.
