Jungmun Saekdal Beach

 

 

Jungmun Saekdal Beach is located in the center of the southern part of Jeju, Jeju Jungmun Resort. The depth of the sea and the big waves make the beach a perfect place to enjoy various marine sports including windsurfing and jet boat rides. The blue sky and sea and the black basalts that blend in together create the unique scenery of Jeju. Haenyeo’s House is a good place to drink and eat fresh seafood while listening to the sound of the waves. The towering rock at the east end of the beach is Jusangjeolli Cliff which includes Haesik Cave. The white-sand beach that diffuses a variety of colors including black, red, white, and gray is also called Jinmosal for its curvy shape like a bow. The largest international surfing competition in Korea is held every June at Jungmun Saekdal Beach as a mecca for surfers.
