Southern Coast

A rough mountain stands behind the reef at southern coast of Enoshima.
Southern Coast during high tide.When you go down the way to the seaside, you will arrive at rocky coast that has rough mountain surface approaching behind.
You can go to this coast only at low tide. The reef sinks in the sea, so please do not enter during high tide.
First of all, please be careful you do not get too close to the cliff. The cliffs are very fragile because of erosion by wind and waves for long years and in fact, the rocks may fall sometimes. There are cave-like holes in some places on the cliff, but please do not enter.
For your safety, don't enter into inside (mountainside) of wirerope.
The cliff is very close to the sea. Warning wirerope in the cliff side.
The reef in the area have many sharp rocks, and the sea is complicated and intricate, so the feet are very unstable. It is better to free both your hands when walking here. But even families with small children can walk down to here and see them.

Between the reefs, there are places where the sea enters deep into the inland. In the surrounding area, there many places which are pooled when the tide is drawn, and there may be fish, shellfish etc.
Sea water enters into deep inland in some places. A cove under the valley.
Walking for a while, you will reach the place where the sea entering deep into the inland. Here is the foot of Yama-futatsu valley, and it is a place that became like a deep valley when the east side and the west side originally were separate islands, contacted each other.
It seems it will be possible to walk further ahead of the reef, but it is unable to go to the direction for Enoshima Iwaya Caves. Because there is a place where the sea is deeply entering into the inland and can not cross the sea.
