The Secret Vacation Part 3: The Greek Island in the Pacific

I will finally reveal the secret vacation destination! We took a holiday to (drumroll please) Yoron Island! Yoron Island is part of the Amami Island chain north of the main island of Okinawa. This island is completely surrounded by a coral reef which results in shallow, bright blue water right off the coast.

The most interesting aspect of Yoron Island to me was the Greek influence. Yoron Island, Japan is considered the sister island to Mykonos, Greece due to similarities in landscape and views. This little island in the Pacific took the title of twin to Mykonos to heart and decorated the island in white monuments and murals. The resort in particular was done completely in blue tile and white buildings reminiscent of Greece. The combination of blue water and white architecture was stunning!
