It was January, and it was a sunny, windy day. Perfect day for the beach! Well, it’s not exactly a popular time to go, but you don’t have to worry about the crowds. Yuigahama Beach is one of the beaches in Kamakura. This beach is to the west of Namerigawa River, which is the main river that runs down the centre of the city. It’s about a 15 minute walk south of Kamakura Station, or you can walk there within 5 minutes from Wadazuka, Yuigahama or Hase stations on the Enoden Line.
It was a very windy day, so across the street from the beach, it felt like a sandstorm. There were even small dunes forming on the beach. However, once on the beach, this wasn’t a problem if you’re by the wet sand. On this day, there were some surfers, but the waves weren’t very big. There were also a few wind surfers, and they were going very fast. Enjoy the pictures!
I hope you enjoyed the pictures. In summer, Yuigahama is very crowded with surfers, wind surfers, sunbathers and swimmers. It’s also very hot. If you’re interested in going there, here’s a map:
