‘Jungdong’ of ‘Jungdong Simgok Badabuchae-gil’ is originated from the direction of east from Hanyang (Gyeongbokgung) where the king resides. The ‘Simgok’ comes from the meaning of a village in a deep valley.
Jeongdongjin’s ‘Buchaekkeut’ terrain and the terrain where the trail is located look like the fan spread out toward the sea, so it was named “Jungdong Simgok Badabuchae-gil(Jungdong Simgok Ocean Fan Trail)”.
Designated as Natural Monument No. 437, it is the only coastal park in Korea where you can observe tectonic changes 23 million years ago, which kept the secret of the birth of the East Sea.
There is a 2.86km trail between Jungdongjin Sun Cruise Parking Lot and Simgok Port where you can enjoy the unexplored beauty from the blue waves of the East Sea and the magnificent rock formations.
This place has been used only as a military patrol route for coastal security. It offers you the most beautiful scenery of the world has ever seen.

‘Jeongdong-Simgok Badabuchae-gil Trail’. It was finally opened to the public in mid-October, 2016, which had not been open to the public as a military patrol service.
The Natural Environment of the Unmanned Sea. I’ve always wanted to come and see. In total, it takes about 70 minutes for a one-way trip, but it takes an hour and a half to look around and take a picture.
If you walk down the downhill and walk straight to the sea, you will see the beginning of the Badabuchae-gil road. I can see a lot of people because it’s weekend morning.
All you have to do is walk into the barbed wire and walk a little bit down the stone road.
There’s no proper road here, so you have to step on a stone, but it’s slippery and it’s shaking a lot, so you have to be careful.
The cool sea breeze is blowing, the salty sea scent is on the tip of my nose, and the sound of the waves is touching my ears.
The opening time is shorter in the winter. It was opened free of charge at first, but now it is charged for admission as more people are visiting.
A strange rock is exquisitely blended with the clean sea of the East Sea. The rock formation, which was created about 23 million years ago, is the only coastal site that can identify the crustal changes in Korea.
Until this time, human beings were rare, so they were kept clean. But i’m worrying about The side effects of opening to the public. For example, I hope that there will not be a problem of waste or environmental pollution. Please take the trash you brought with you!
It is Literally transparent. A clean, clear sea with no garbage in sight. It’s clear and transparent enough for the floor to shine.
It’s a nice day to walk. It’s east in the early morning, so the sun disturbs your eyes, but sunglasses are a must!
It shows that the remaining barbed wire is a military area. In addition, glass fragments are embedded in the rocks to prevent people from climbing.
Some barbed wire is not so high that tall people should be careful of their heads.
The color of the sea is amazing. It feels a little different from the fresh water of Jeju Island. If the sea of Jeju Island gives a warm and gentle feeling, East Sea is cold and deep feeling here.
But in terms of clarity and cleanliness, East Sea is more clear and clean here. Of course, only here on the beach!
Here, Jeongdong-Simgok Badabuchae-gil Trail is very fantastic. A sea path with an exquisite blend of clean and fresh sea and solemn rocks.
If you go to Gangneung for travelling, the number 1 spot is right here on the Ocean trail!
