It's famous for the Enoshima Shrine, which features sculptures of the Buddhist goddess Benzaiten. It is also host to the Enospa hot springs and the Samuel Cocking Garden, which features a 19th-century English-style lighthouse and a tower called the Sea Candle. Tidal pools and Buddhist sculptures can be found in the Iwaya Caves. The island is visible from famous inland beaches.
