Anyone spent any time at all in Okinawa?

What are some great things to do there? Particularly, where are some highly recommended beaches that are popular, and might have hostels or reasonable priced hotels near them?

Yes, I spent a week there in April, and it was nice! I would recommend seeing the following:

- Naha area (Shuri Castle, Shin-kina Garden, Kokusai Dori
- Chatan area (Miyama American Village)
- Castle ruins (There are 4 of them throughout the island)
- Beaches (I like Zanpa the best, but there are many nice beaches all around the island. Manza and Rennaisance are nice too.)
- Sefa Utaki (rock formations)
- Peace Memorial Park
- Ocean Expo Park
- Hiji Falls (if you do not fear habu snakes, they are known to be aggresive)

Make sure to try sea grapes, soki soba (noodles with ribs), Blue Seal ice cream, and Orion Beer.

I loved the Okinawan tacos in Naha! I spent 5 days there, and really want to get back to Okinawa again and explore more outside of Naha.

I'm moving there on Tuesday!

I'm looking forward to all the food....Well, I'm a professional chef, going there to work, so I guess that would be obvious.
