Ah… Okinawa. Turqoise sea, white sandy beaches, rugged capes, romantic sunsets. Throw in fun-packed seaside resorts that are eager to please the entire family, you have a recipe for a perfect family vacation.
We have only been to Okinawa once in June 2015. My greatest regret then was staying only 5 nights. That was way too short to experience what Okinawa had to offer. We barely scratched the tip of the iceberg.
On this page, you will find our short 6-days itinerary for an extremely rejuvenating and fun-filled vacation for the family, travel tips, attraction review and our raving about the fantastic resort we stayed in – Renaissance Okinawa Resort.
For many international travellers, the most common way to fly to Okinawa is via a domestic flight from Tokyo. However, coming from Singapore, going to Tokyo for a transit to Okinawa is a huge detour, since Okinawa is nearer to Singapore than Tokyo.
Prior to our June 2015 trip, we looked up some of our Singapore to Okinawa flight options, and consolidated our thoughts in the following post.
Singapore to Okinawa:
For our trip, we took Scoot Airlines from Singapore to Taipei, and Peach Airlines from Taipei to Okinawa. We have written about our Peach Airlines flight in the post below, as we understand that not many people have tried Peach Airlines before and may be apprehensive about taking an airline that they haven’t heard of before.
Taipei to Okinawa:
Starting from November 2017, Jetstar announced that they will be operating DIRECT flights from Singapore to Okinawa (Naha). I think this is extremely exciting news for Singaporeans and it’s going to make it SO MUCH easier and cheaper for Singaporeans to visit Okinawa now!
