Yuigahama beach is one of the most popular swimming spots in Kamakura. The waves are soft, and the beach is shallow. So it is very family-friendly.
It is a sandy beach where you can find bodyboard and surfing lessons.
There are around 20 shops lined on the shore, so you'll be sure to find what you're looking for.
You can take the train and take the JR Yokosuka line to Kamakura station and walk around 15 minutes, or you can take the Enoshima Electric Railway until Yuihahama staion. From there, it should be a few minute walk to the beach.
Is there anything more summery than eating Thai food, drinking an ice cold beer and enjoying the sun at the beach? This cute little stand is right by the beach and offers great Thai food.
Just like the summer comes and goes, this restaurant is only open 2 months a year. This restaurant is known for their pad thai noodles (a classic!), fried rice, green curry, etc. It's cheap, quick and good!
