    Approximately 300 kilometers to the southwest of Okinawa's main island is Miyako Island, a relatively flat island made of elevated coral reef. There are no rivers on Miyako Island, and due to the fact that the soil does not flow out into the sea, Miyako Island is well known for having beaches of exceptional beauty with several beaches on Miyako Island ranking among the top beaches in Japan.
