After living in Okinawa for a while, Motobu became my favourite place to relax. Whenever I visit, I try to spend a couple of days there. Motobu has all the best of sea and jungle, as well as lots of fun things to do and eat!

It's a lovely quiet place. There are some great hole-in-the-wall eating places, but it can be hard to get around without a car.
