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!
If you love to walk along the beach, and enjoy a cup of coffee or hallabong tea while looking at the ocean, then Lowa Cafe is a must on your to-visit list!
Name: Woljeongri Lowa Cafe (월정리 LOWA)
Address: Jeju-si, Gujwa-eup 6 제주시 구좌읍 6번지
To get there by bus: Go to Jeju Intercity Bus Terminal. Take bus #701 towards Shinseogwi (신서귀).
After about 1 hour, get off at Gujwajungang Elementary School (구좌중앙초등학교) and walk for 7 minutes. It is right by the ocean.
Hours: Monday to Sunday, 9:30am to 9:00pm
On the first floor, you are welcome to fruit-infused water and a view of the ocean. Walking further in, you can enjoy coffee in a smaller room with a glass roof.
Going up the stairs, you will enter an open area. This roof has seating space so that you can soak in the sunshine while enjoying a hot latte.
They offer a variety of beverages and dessert.
Their specialty drink is a hallabong tea.
The cafe sits right by Woljeongri beach, so you can take a walk along the shore and breathe in the salty sea air.
