A popular superb view cafe on Ishigaki Island Japan

A superb view cafe that you should definitely visit when you come to Ishigaki Island. You will be healed by eating while looking at the beautiful sea of Ishigaki Island. There are superb view cafes in various areas of Ishigaki Island, such as the cafe in front of the sea.
In this article, we will introduce one popular cafe in each area, assuming that you will stop by on your way to a tourist attraction.

POINTIf you want to eat while looking at the sea, we recommend the Yamabare area.

Yamabare area is located between Kabira Bay and Yonehara Beach, about 35 minutes by car from Ishigaki Port (around city center). Because it is an area on a hill, there are several cafes with a view of the sea.

Seven Colors Ishigakijima

Seven Colors Ishigakijima, introduced below, is no longer in business as a cafe. Now it is only available to guests as an accommodation facility. It is sad because it was a very nice cafe.

Seven Colors is located in the northern part of Ishigaki Island, and it takes about 55 minutes from Ishigaki Port. Although it is far from the city center (around Ishigaki Port), it is a cafe visited by many travelers.

This is a cafe you should stop by when you go to the popular tourist attraction, Hirakubo Lighthouse. It is located along the way to Hirakubo Lighthouse. There are also accommodations with ocean views in all rooms, which is also recommended.

The beach is right in front of the cafe, so you can eat while feeling the sea breeze. It is a 10-second walk from the cafe to the beach, and it is a place where you can enjoy after meals.
In addition, there is a diaper changing table and a kids’ space, so it is a recommended cafe for families with children too.

SevenColors Seat

Seats are inside and outside the cafe. The inside seats are also bright with glass on the sea side, and you can see the sea. However, we recommend the outside seats where the sea breeze feels good.
There are sofa seats, table seats and counter seats on the terrace. The most recommended seat is the counter seat. The counter seats are arranged so that you can see the sea from all the seats. The sofa seats are nice, but the low table makes them unsuitable for dining.

BerryWaffles

We have eaten taco rice and dessert, and the berry waffle plate (pictured above) of the dessert was especially delicious. The sweet and sour sauce of berries and the sweetness of waffles and whipping cream are excellent.

After eating, you can enjoy the beach in front of the cafe and the view from the rooftop.

SeaForest

Restaurant SeaForest

This is a restaurant you should stop by when you come to Tamatorizaki Observatory, a popular tourist attraction. It is located on a hill about a minutes’ walk from the parking lot of Tamatorizaki Observatory.

It is a restaurant for adults that serves course meals at dinner time. The restaurant has a calm atmosphere, and you can eat while looking at the beautiful sea. Terrace seats are recommended on days when the wind is not strong.

SeaForest View

You can also eat lunch, but we especially recommend the “Shimatofu pancakes”. This is a pancake dough with tofu in it. This is a menu that requires a reservation limited to 4 meals a day, and can only be eaten from 3pm to 4pm. You can make a reservation by phone only.

The fluffy pancakes are put with whipping cream and mango sauce, which is just the right amount of sweetness. The pancakes are big with three layers, but they taste delicious without any tofu taste, so you can eat it alone. It has enough volume to be shared by two people.

SeaForest Pancakes

Besides mango sauce, you can also choose berry sauce. Both sauces have fruit fresh and are delicious, but I liked the berry sauce because it was refreshing.
A meal set of pancakes and tea is recommended. You can enjoy as many cups of different types of tea as you like. Tea goes well with pancakes and you can feel a luxurious time.

This restaurant is recommended for couples and adults rather than families. It is a restaurant with a quiet and calm atmosphere.

The menu items of this cafe are mainly drinks, not meals.

This place is recommended as a cafe with a view of the sea near the airport. It is about a 15-minute by car from the airport.

The terrace seats on the roof are the best seats. You will be healed by the beautifully landscaped garden and sea views. It’s an open place, so it feels very good.
There is also a walking course on the large farm. If you have enough time, a leisurely walk is also a good choice.

Nobare Farm View

It’s about 5 minutes walk from the bus stop. The number of buses is small, but you can also go by bus.

Carib Cafe

Carib Cafe

It is a cafe in the Yamabare area, about 35 minutes by car from Ishigaki Port (city center). The Yamabara area is located between Kabira Bay and Yonehara Beach, and is a place you should stop by when you visit them.
Since the Yamabare area is on a hill, there are several cafes with a view of the sea besides this cafe. Popular cafes such as ALOALO Cafe, Cafe Laguna and Cafe Sunkiss are also located in this area.

POINTThere are several cafes in the Yamabare area where you can have lunch while looking at the sea, so we recommend going there.

Carib Cafe is popular cafe that was introduced in Japanese TV programs.
I ate hayashi rice. Hayashi rice is a Japanese dish with hashed beef on top of rice.
It was delicious with a lot of tender beef and large cut mushrooms in a rich sauce. But it tasted a little strong to me.

CaribCafe View

We recommend the terrace seats facing the sea, but it is disappointing that the terrace seats are only drinks and desserts and you cannot eat food. However, the indoor seats are also covered with glass on the sea side, so you can see the beautiful sea.

It is not possible to make a reservation, so we recommend you to go at a time other than noon.
The official Instagram has not been updated. Therefore, it seems that there is no choice but to call the cafe for information on business hours such as temporary closure.

Hikari Rakuen

From this cafe you can see the mountains, not the sea. The cafe is in an open area so you can feel the openness and see the greenery of the mountains very beautifully. The juice is also delicious so we would like to introduce it as a recommended one.

HikariRakuen View

It is located in the center of the island, about 15 minutes by car from Ishigaki Port(city center).
There are also light meals such as sandwiches, but the drink menu is extensive. You can relax on the open terrace seats and be healed by the beautiful views of the blue sky and trees.

HikariRakuen Juice

I drank tropical mixed juice. It’s a juice made from three fruits, and the staff squeezes the fruit when you order. Some menus may not be available depending on the fruit season, but there are many menus and you may be wondering which one to choose.
This juice is delicious. Therefore, I would like to go to drink this juice again even if the weather is bad and I can’t see the scenery.

Miru Miru Hompo

Miru Miru Cafe

This is a cafe on a hill where you can eat ice cream while looking at the sea. It’s an ice cream shop, but we recommend it because the hamburgers are delicious. The meat used in the hamburger is not Ishigaki Beef, but the flavor of the meat overflows from the thick hamburg steak.

This cafe is also located at Ishigaki Airport, but the main shop is definitely recommended. At the main shop, you can eat while looking at the beautiful sea on the terrace, which will increase your tastes.

It’s a sunset spot, so it’s recommended to go at dusk too.

・Bus stop : Fusaki Beach Resort
・It’s far from the bus stop.

It is a cafe with a view of the sea near the city center, about 6 minutes by car from Ishigaki Port (city center). It is a bright room with white as the base color, and there are also terrace seats. We recommend the counter seats on the terrace facing the sea. The sea is right in front of the beautiful garden.
The food served is also colorful, and it is a cafe that is especially popular with women.

Cafe PuffPuff Seats

Next to this cafe, there is a cafe called “Re:Hellow BEACH“, which is also a popular cafe. This is a cafe with a cute interior and is popular with women. These fashionable cafes are next to each other. Both cafes have a lot of pictures on Instagram, so why not visit the one you like?

POINTPUFF PUFF : Calm atmosphere
Re:Hellow BEACH : Cute atmosphere

You can make a reservation on the website. In addition, you can know the latest business hours on it.

If you go by route bus, the nearest bus stop is “Maezato Koen”. However, there are only two buses a day here, so you will probably have to walk from the “Hirae higashi” bus stop.

Cafe PuffPuff meals

We had a meal and tropical parfait. It’s a cafe that not only has beautiful views, but also delicious meals
We ordered a tropical parfait for the purpose of taking pictures and it was very delicious. The vanilla ice cream on top of it was especially delicious and we wanted to buy this vanilla ice cream as a souvenir. This is a recommended menu.

This cafe is only open during the summer. It is located in front of the sea, so you can eat while looking at the sea.
It is located about 10 minutes by car from the city area around the port, and it is also close to the bus stop, so you can also go by bus.

When you enter the cafe, you can see the beautiful sea view from the full glass windows. You can enjoy your meal while watching the sea from inside the cafe, but the terrace seats are recommended. Eating while feeling the sea breeze enhances the feeling of being on vacation at a resort.

St.ELMO View

However, the terrace seats are very hot on windless days, and it is not a good situation for lunch. Even on the day we visited, the wind wasn’t blowing and we ate while sweating. On such days, it seems good to eat in the air-conditioned store and take a picture after the meal.

This cafe does not make reservations for lunch time. Therefore, you will not know if the terrace seats are available until you go, so it may be better to avoid it around noon.

The main meal menu is pizza and pasta. The hibiscus cream soda in the photo above is a juice that makes you feel like a resort. It tasted refreshing and was easy to drink.

No meal menu.

It is a cafe that we want you to stop by on the way to drive. Beautiful flowers bloom in its manicured garden, and you can see the sea beyond the garden.
It’s a small cafe with only terrace seats. If you sit on the terrace, you should be able to relax comfortably with the sea breeze.

It is located in the west of the island, about 13 minutes by car from Ishigaki Port (city area). There is nothing around the cafe, but it is within walking distance from the bus stop.

Miyara Farm shaved ice

This cafe does not have a meal menu. It is a shaved ice and juice shop made with seasonal fruits. Therefore, the menu changes according to the season.

We had a pineapple frappe and a brown sugar frappe.
The pineapple frappe is fluffy shaved ice topped with a syrup that leaves the pulp of the pineapple. It is not too sweet and has a refreshing aftertaste. I rarely eat shaved ice, but it was delicious enough to make me want to eat it again.
Brown sugar frappe is covered with brown sugar and ginger syrup. The taste is not too sweet due to the ginger syrup put on it. However, some people may not like the tangy taste of ginger.
