Explore Yoron Island:
Yoron Island, home to approximately 5,000 people, is often hailed as the "Oriental Pearl" due to its translucent seas that captivate all who visit. This charming island is entirely surrounded by coral reefs, embracing pristine white sandy beaches within. The high transparency of the waters gives rise to the mesmerizing emerald green sea you'll encounter. While many resort destinations boast beautiful seas, Yoron Island holds a genuine allure with its untouched natural beauty.

Welcome Cafe & Bar:
After a long journey, we want you to relax in this breathtaking setting during the early evening of your first day. To achieve this, we have introduced a Cafe & Bar on the premises. We value your private space, so the operating hours are limited to 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM on the check-in day. However, we can arrange daily openings based on your requests, so feel free to let us know. We offer coffee, beer, wine, and other soft drinks for your enjoyment (additional charges apply).
Fishing Experience (Complimentary):
In the spirit of embracing "island time," we offer a casual fishing experience that doesn't require prior reservations. Using bait such as shrimp and squid, you can enjoy fishing at the neighboring fishing port. The high transparency of Yoron Island's waters allows you to witness fish playfully nibbling at the bait, providing a sensation similar to being in a natural aquarium. We will provide fishing guidance, so beginners and children are welcome to participate.
Shima Hotel is conveniently located just a 1-minute walk from the Yoron Blue Sea. You can indulge in beach activities and return to the comfort of your room without worrying about changing or dirtying your rental car.

【What is Yoron Beef?】
Yoron Island, with a population of approximately 5,000 people, has more cattle than human residents, indicating the thriving livestock industry on the island. Most of the cattle are shipped outside the island and raised as famous brand beef in various regions (some Yoron cattle are known to be part of renowned brands like Matsusaka beef and A5/A4-grade black wagyu). However, as a result, locally produced beef was not readily available on the island.
・In case of strong winds or heavy rain, the BBQ may be canceled or rescheduled.
・Salt, sauce, and soy sauce are provided.
・You can purchase ingredients other than those on the menu (such as fish or yakisoba) at a nearby supermarket.
・You are welcome to use the kitchenware in your room's kitchen for serving and eating.
