On the West side of the island, Kaiji beach is famous for star-sand and is popular for swimming as well as sand-sifting. The tiny white stars are actually the skeletons of tiny sea creatures (but that name isn’t so cute), and can be found by careful searching to bring good luck. If you aren’t the sand-sifting kind you can browse the sea-side stalls for little sand souvenirs.
