ONJUKU BEACH 御宿
Live Web Cam
We have been told of a new camera going into a restaurant and will link it as soon as it is up and running.
South from Taito and Izumi and North of Hebara. Onjuku beach is party central in summer with easy access and lots of accommodation the beach gets packed in summer. Aug 22 2010 and the beach must have had 5000+ people - looked like the circus was in town what with everyone and all their tents.
Its a beautiful wide semi circle beach with very flat contours so even the smallest swells break. Over head high and it starts closing out however around this size it can be real fun and last summer (2009) a sand bank at the southern end worked well for over 2 months.
If you wanna go on a beach date / picnic and don't want to hassle with the crowds in Shonan then this is a good option, especially as you can get in a surf while your friends watch from under the beach umbrella.
Longboards, Shortboards, Funboards, Stand UP Paddle Boards, Swimming, Bodysurfing - you'll see it all at Onjuku. Summer time sees a section of the beach closed off for swimming only.
Showers and toilets at each end of the beach, road parking, or paid carparks
None as yet.
