[Webzine 2] Profiles of beaches and cafes in Jeju Island: Iho Tewoo Beach

 

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!

Beaches and Cafes in Jeju

“Filled with Youthful Energy”

There are beautiful unexplored zones and small islands along the coast of Jeju Island. The coastal areas bustle with people from all over the world and there are various things for them to do and see. Let’s take a closer look at Jeju’s beaches. You can also find more information on what to do and see while here by consulting VisitJeju.net

 

 

The Closest Beach from Downtown Jeju,

Iho Tewoo Beach

If you want to experience a spectacular view and breathe in the fresh sea breeze as soon as you land at Jeju International Airport, then you should drive west from the entrance of Shin-Jeju. In ten minutes, you will see Iho Tewoo Beach where charming red and white Trojan horses symbolize the beach. The beach becomes a festival venue throughout July and August where various marine sports are available for you to try. In particular, the Wondam (stone anchovy trap) fishing festival that is held throughout the year and anchovy fishing that takes place from June to September are the major experiences you should not miss. Boost your energy with the raw anchovy you just caught and enjoy the Tewoo rowing competition and sand bath that you can only experience here in Jeju before the summer ends.

 

 

Tip. The Traditional Raft, ‘Tewoo’

It is a type of primitive fishing boat made of woven logs. It is conveyed that it only existed in Jeju in the past. Originally, Tewoo was made of Korean fir but not it is hard to obtain those trees so Tewoo is mostly made of cedar.
