[Webzine 2] Profiles of beaches and cafes in Jeju Island: Hamdeok Seoubong 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!

The Maldives of Korea That Embraces the Emerald Green Water

Hamdeok Seoubong Beach

 

Hamdeok Seoubong Beach with its beautiful emerald green water and sugar white sand that is resplendent in its spirit is located about 14 km east from downtown Jeju. The beach that is praised as the Maldives of Korea is often visited by families with kids for its shallow depth and calm waves. The moment you arrive at the beach, you will attempt to convince yourself that you are in a different country. With tall palm trees standing in lines to welcome you from the entrance, the arched viaduct above black basalt, and a red lighthouse blends in together and creates an exotic scenery.
