"It's Very beautiful scenery and beaches"
food is just ok. not really a con.
In a nutshell
A place worth seeing.
I am a coffee-addict and I need java or at the very least tea ( to pacify me) at all hours of the day. My hubby is no different, that's why we are soul mates. Back home in Singapore, we were pampered by the cheap availability of foamy, milky tea and coffee at all hours of the night and day. Not so in Korea. Tea and coffee is expensive here. Since we're unwilling to fork out thousands of won to feed our unhealthy habits, we trudged our way to their local convenience store every night to drink instant mocha. Unlike the 7-11s in Singapore, their stores have chairs and tables for you to feed yourself. We were glad to get our java at a cheap price ( 500w ), even glader to get a hot drink on a cold winter's night.

The beaches are enticing, but watch out for the jellyfish and other stingy things.
Noticed quite a few of the little bastards.
A few sea urchins about, too.
You sure don't want to step on one of those...

Bongpo Resort runs a dive operation off of the fishing boat dock a bit north of Sokcho.
I booked/travelled with NomaDive, of Seoul.
You'll want at least a 5mm suit. Water was moderately cool, with a hood and gloves needed for the deeper than 15m dives. Water temps ranged from 15-20 degrees C. Visibility was decent, approx 5-10m clear.
Lots of neat little critters about, to snap pics of.
There are more than 10 different nearby boat accessed dive sites out of this location, with a couple beach entries as well.
Nearby restaurants and convenience stores ensure you don't go hungry during your surface interval.
Equipment: Equipment? Bring your own, or rent it either there or through a shop.
If you have big hands/feet, you might have trouble finding boots and gloves that fit.
