Our trail has a beautiful view of the ocean and the powerful wind turbines.

The hike was slow along this point because a lot of people can’t help but pause to take pictures of the beautiful silver grass (oksae 억새).

These are Jeju wishing rocks, a part of the local tradition where people stack rocks on top of each other while making wishes.

As we walk, we can feel the cool wind and see the blueness of the sky reflected in the water.

Woljeongri Beach is another beautiful stop along Olle Trail 20.

The end point for this Olle Trail is the Haenyeo Museum. On October 30 and 31, KOREAT hosted their 50 Food Truck event at the museum. The top 50 KOREAT restaurants presented their special dishes as tapas for 5,000 won a plate.

Besides delicious food, there are also different booths selling Jeju products, and even an event promoting Scott towels with games and activities.
