This beautiful beach offers excellent views of Mount Fuji on a clear day and Enoshima can also be seen just off the coast. There is a nice designated area for beach sports such as volleyball. The most popular activity here seems to be surfing; though the conditions were not good that day there were still a lot of people in the water. This beach has a great atmosphere with people walking their dogs, others practicing their kickboxing on the pier and cyclists riding along the concrete above the beach. Kugenuma is an hour outside of Tokyo, if you are keen for a beach day it is definitely worth the commute.
