[Jeju_TRAVEL] Jeju’s driving course – Sinchang coastal road and windmills

An important note on Jeju’s updated bus system and this blog post

From August 2017, Jeju Island implemented a new city and intercity bus system. It increased the number of buses in service, while simplifying the routes, fees and numbering system.

Consequently, the contents of this previously published blog post may have changed. We therefore would kindly request that you consult this page for new bus maps in English on VisitJeju.net,  and this page on our blog for a chart of the old and new bus route numbers.

If you read Korean, then the province’s official bus system website is a useful and up-to-date resource. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels on Jeju Island!

– Jeju Tourism’s resident Korean travel diarist was out on his island travels again and sent this story –

While you’re driving around Jeju Island you get to meet some awesome roads where your exclamation comes out automatically.

In this post we’re introducing one of these places. It has attractive natural scenery mixed in with the marvel of man-made technology.

This is the Sinchang coastal road and windmills.

Actually the machines are not really windmills. They are wind turbines that make up wind farms. However they look like windmills, so that’s why we call them that.

You can also find a similar driving course near Woljeong Beach.

Jeju is famous for three things. Its women, stones, and wind. Thus the conditions are good for wind farms. There is also a plan to build these machines in the ocean too.

If we have huge wind farms it could become another famous attraction similar to those found in Denmark in Europe.

Anyway the views are so beautiful and I really recommend you going for a drive out to the region.

You can take a rest at Singaemul Park.

There is an old-style outdoor wash room separated for men and women along with a tidal swimming pool.

There is also a long bridge to walk out on, which settles just above the ocean.

I walked slowly and listened to my favorite songs.

Even though this is a mix of artificial with nature all goes together well.

Plus this place isn’t as popular as other areas on Jeju Island. So you have a secluded feeling.

In the ocean you can see a sculpture called dageumbari. It is 16m long, 4m wide and weighs some 50t. At night it lights up.

At the end of the bridge there is a lighthouse to enjoy.

So here’s another Jeju location to add into your busy Jeju Island travel plan.
