Yuigahama is a beach near Kamakura, a city in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
The relation between the beach and its neighboring areas is complex. Although Yuigahama is legally the entire 3.2 km beach that goes from Inamuragasaki, which separates it from Shichirigahama, to Zaimokuzas Iijima cape, which separates it from Kotsubo and the Miura Peninsula, the name is customarily used to indicate the portion west of the Namerigawa river, while the eastern half is called Zaimokuza Beach.
Approximately 20 minutes walk from Kamakura Station, this endearingly grubby beach is one of the most popular in the Shonan area, and you may have to fight for a spot on the sand at weekends.
Yuigahama is the beach that arches around Sagami Bay along the length of Kamakura’s seafront. The beach makes for a pleasant walk, but be aware that the beach is very popular in the summer months. In the winter, it makes for a pleasant windy stroll.

For those interested in water sports, the beach is very popular with paddleboarders and windsurfers.
