Minamijima is a uninhabited island to the southwest of Chichijima, where a geographic formation known as submerged Karst that is quite rare worldwide can be observed. In order to preserve the distinctive plant life, being accompanied by a guide is required when visiting this island, and entrance is limited during winter. A white sand beach extending in a fan-like shape is exceptionally beautiful; green turtles lay eggs there between May and August.
