The Yongmeori Coast

got its name because the beach looks like a dragon that is jumping into the ocean with its head raised

The Yongmeori coast is located at the foot of Sanbangsan Mountain, extending to the shore. It is called the Yongmeori Coast because it resembles the head of a dragon going into the sea.

Tens of millions of years of stratified rock form a quaint cliff on the waves. The traces of a sunken cave or rock wall, like a secret room in a wave, make one feel grand when confronted with a long history.

The spectacular 30 ~ 50m long cliffs were also filmed as a background for the commercial and film.

A narrow but flat wave-cut terrace has been developed in front of the sea food bridge, serving as a trail for visitors to the Yongmyeorean coast.

It takes about 30 minutes to take a look around, but in bad weather or high tide, there is a high risk, so it is recommended to check the available hours before visiting.

In the coastal area, which is located along the sandstone floor, haenyeo(Women diver) are selling seafood on a bed of plates.

The coast of Yongmeori is a sea cliff and can be called the Grand Canyon of Korea. As I walk on the rocks, the sea looks back and forth, and I admire how the rocks look different in color, and how wonderful they are dug by waves in between.

After turning around the coast and climbing up Sanbangsan Mountain and look down, the rock looks like a dragon, but the head and the back part seem to be cut off.

There are too many places to take pictures when you look around the coast of Yongmeori. Every place is photogenic, and no matter what shape or background you take, you look great. Therefore, people taking wedding photos and couples taking snapshots are often seen everywhere.

In the winter of Jeju Island, and early spring, rape flowers are in full bloom. Yellow rape flowers bloom all over Jeju Island, making it look more vibrant and beautiful.
