Ever wondered about the natural phenomenon of Jeju Island?  Here is our breakdown of favorite things to not miss when visiting Jeju Island!

Beaches of Jeju Island

Without a doubt, Jeju Island has the best beaches unmatched by any other provinces throughout Korea.  Whether it may be golden, black, or white sand, all beaches have unique characteristics and ambience.

The most popular destination will be HyeopJae beach which is located in the western side of Jeju Island.  Its unique characteristic is definitely the tropical looking island (Biyangdo) floating in the distance.  White powdery sand, crystal emerald sea, a floating island in the distance, and fried chicken ready to be ordered…what more do you want?

Jungmun beach is also one of the most popular beaches in Jeju Island.  Although the sea is not a as clear as Hyeopjae it has nice waves to show off your surfing skills.  The rocks nearby also has great snorkelling activities.  The beach lies right next to Hyatt Hotel (the Dr. Who Robot looking building) so if you feel like having a luxury getaway, Jungmun beach is the answer.

Samyang Black Sand Beach may not be the cleanest beach but it redeems itself by providing KILLER sunsets.  Stroll along the black sand whilst witnessing the red sun setting behind puffs of grey clouds.  Romantic evening walks at the beach anyone?

Another one to mention is Udo beach.  Although it can be a bit of a pain to take a ferry to the island, the quality of the sand and sea is the purest amongst all other beaches in Jeju Island.  Looking for some quiet time for healing?  Udo beach is the place to be!  Unless you are staying on Udo overnight don’t forget to catch the last ferry at 5pm!  Sad times…i know… 🙁
