Yaeyama poses no health risks apart from those found elsewhere in Okinawa. Use plenty of suntan lotion and don't insert your hands into holes in trees that make suspicious hissing sounds.

One should, however, take care NOT to snorkel where there are posted warnings of the indigenous jellyfishes. These areas are usually clearly marked. Also, when scuba diving be aware that on the reefs the highly venomous Crown-of-Thorns seastar does exist, though the local diving service operators actively eliminate them when found as that species of seastar seriously damages the reefs and is extremely dangerous to humans.
