This is a gorgeous little beach on the North-eastern Jeju Coast. It is a little busy during the day, as it is well visited by locals.
Go at sunset, very romantic indeed. you can stroll with your 'Kissing Buddy' hand in hand, arm in arm, finger in finger watching the old ladies telling their children to go into the water and find as many shellfish as they can.
Or the guys sitting on the pier smoking more skinny cigarettesand catching teeny tiny fish.
When you have finished, go to Sushi Restaurant right on the pier, that serves fresh Flounder (Kwang-eo), Snapper (Or-Rok) and Tuna (Cham Ch'i). Eat the sushi with a bottle of Jeju Soju, even have 3 and get pleasantly plastered. We did, and had a ball.
But you'll need a rental car to get there
As I said earlier, Jeju is an Island for lovers. It is best known in Korea as a Honeymoon destination, not only because there are a fair few traditions on the island aimed at young couples, like rubbing the nose of a Harubang to cocieve a son as your first child.
Jeju is also a beautiful Island, dominated by a moutain, and ringed by bays and beaches. Often the beach fronts are littered with small houses, stone walls and fields of wild flowers.
these are perfect places to take a stroll with that special someone. :o)
Jeju Island is very gardened. The Island is famous for two main crops, Tangerines and garlic. Both are ubiquitous. But also other crops are grown. Flowers are becoming a popular crop.
Go and have your photo taken in a Tangerine orchard. Everyone does it. Some orchards even have 'Photo Places' and charge one or two thousand won ($1-$2). I Like photographing people working in fields.
Jeju Is famous for Seafood. Seafood is almost synonymous with seafood. Its even possible to eat whale here. Yes, :o/ !
Anyway fresh Sushi (Hwae) is wonderful here, and surprsingly cheap. Also Jeju Island Haemeul Tang (seafood soup) is well known throughout the country.
At low tide all over Jeju, you will see women and children collecting Chogae (shellfish) which they will use to make Haemeul Tang. Its a well loved food and fun to collect shellfish for.
