[Webzine 2] Profiles of beaches and cafes in Jeju Island: Woljeong-ri 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 Hot Place of Jeju Beaches

Woljeong-ri Beach

If you drive along the coastal road toward the east from Jeju International Airport, you will encounter the breathtaking view of Woljeong-ri Beach where even the moon would linger. Above a crescent-shaped 2.3-km-long sandy beach, the fine sand flutters and dances. Travelers who visit this place are often fascinated by this beach that they don’t even know the meaning of its name. The shallow depth of the beach makes it a perfect place to be in harmony with nature. It would be a nice idea to sit on a wooden chair while losing yourself in your thoughts as you enjoy the view of the beach away from your busy daily life.
