If stunning beaches weren’t enough, jeju Island has one of the most interesting and unique rock formations in Korea. Here are a few famous and popular sites to definitely visit:
Jungmun Jusangjeolli Cliff: This pillar rock formation is the largest in Korea and it is a Cultural Monument in Jeju Island. This stunning landform was formed when hot lava flowed from the volcano and rapidly cooled when it reached the sea, building layer upon layer.
Oedolgae: Oedolgae lies on the south of Jeju Island in Seogwipo and can be seen in passing when walking Olle Trails Route 6 and 7. Legend has it that a grandfather went out to sea fishing but never returned. His wife cried and cried until she turned into a stack in the middle of the sea. Ok…. How did she get so BIG?
Seopjikoji : This place is a popular movie set for the Korean drama ‘All In’. In spring yellow rapeseed flowers bloom here whereas in Fall, wild flowers bloom giving it a romantic atmosphere. You can see Seongsan Tuff Cone in the distance making this place a picture shooting fiesta 😀
Yongmeori Coast: Also known as ‘Dragon’s Head Coast’ because apparently a part of this coast looks like a Dragon’s head which is about to dive into the water….hmmm…well you guys can be the judge of that. However there’s no doubt the shape, size, and intricate patterns of this solidified lava is nothing short of amazing.
