Beachend Cafe - An ocean view romance over brunch

Miura city is one of the best-kept secrets in Kanagawa prefecture as it hides the most beautiful coastline. Along its coast rests a seaside restaurant with a breathtaking view of the ocean as far as the eyes can see.

An hour and a half from Tokyo station traveling directly south you'll end up reaching a different world in Japan.

Japan has always been known for its technological significance and its city's endless concrete jungle outlook. To find ocean water is as easy as traveling in any direction and reaching the end of the island mainland. Although Japan is surrounded by the sea, it is nearly impossible to find reachable beach water as most of the surrounding water is the deep sea for tankers and cruise ships.

There is an upside and downside to the coastline and peninsula. The upside is the waters are virtually untouched and so far removed from tourists that it is a journey to visit and to leave. The downside is there is no train station. You must take a bus.

This is a perfect location to hang out and enjoy the view and listen to the crashing of the waves as its soothing and calming. A friendly dog to meet us at the entrance. It was a reminder for Max from Disney's The little mermaid, Prince Eric's cute dog.

Beachend Cafe

The two-story restaurant sits atop a ridge overlooking the coastline and has a surrounding patio facing the water. The inside of the restaurant showcases a wide-open spread with two floors.

The bottom floor features a brown, red and white color that compliments the blue water outside. The outside has seating for large groups and counter-type seating.

The patio seating sprawls around the building. It's cute and quaint and gives vibes of both beachfront and vacationing. Having brunch out here is an experience on the outskirts of Japan's city life. The chairs, benches, and counters are both a mix of darkened and lightened wood and contrast the brighter light sky.

I originally ordered breakfast but was shut down due to the time being past 1030 AM. I was offered the lunch menu and ordered coffee, Misaki tuna curry and the pasta of the day. All the time came with bread rolls and a small side salad. The tuna was cooked to perfection and it looked similar to chicken.

Lunch menu is available at 11am, but last order for breakfast is 1030AM.

In the beginning, I could not tell the difference and was reminded that I ordered a tuna dish. The browning of the tuna was so well done it was an absolute stunner. I was overwhelmed with the presentation followed by the taste. Usually, curry has a heavy consistency following up its richness in flavor, however this curry was about being tangy, sweet and compliments the fish.

The spice in the curry secretly creeps in as a reminder to respect your food, and do not judge a book by its cover. My second dish was the pasta of the day.

It was an olive oil pasta with vegetables and parmesan cheese. The overall pasta tasted earthy and organic as the vegetables were the heavier leafy greens and broccoli and the oil was lightly drizzled and mixed to perfection. This dish was the perfect complement to a hearty, spicy curry. Strangely enough, eating outside gets the food quite cold in the wintertime.

The Beachend cafe is highly recommended and I suggest bringing a friend or even a date.

If you are looking for a sweet beachside view, far from crowds and nearly hidden from the rest of Japan, I strongly urge a visit to the most wonderful overview of the sea, sand and a spicy tuna curry.
