Today I'm staying on Zamami, a small island an hour boat trip from Naha. With a population of about 1000 people, it's a very quiet place. I booked a room at Patio House Reef, in a small hamlet called Ama, a 15-minute walk from the main Zamami village. I chose it because it looked comfortable and clean, and they have wifi internet access.

When I arrived, I was told to feel free to use the bicycle that had been left outside my room. So use it I did, to cycle around the western half of the island and visit the four viewing platforms. After I got back, I made the most of their lovely garden and deck area, sitting outside under the covered part until dinner time.

I had opted to have an evening meal on top of my room rate, and boy was it a feast. The wife of the owner prepared it for me, and it had everything: fish, meat, tofu, sashimi, vegetables, noodles, and even a piece of fruit and a yoghurt. Delicious!

All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Thanks to Dave and his Zamami English Guide for pointing me toward this great find.
