Jeongdongjin Beach is famous around the world as it has the closest station to the ocean. Therefore, you can see the sea as soon as you get off at Jeongdongjin Station.

There are also trains going to Seoul and Jeongdongjin, so there is convenience in transportation.

In the case of Jeongdongjin Beach, there are three places where people can swim because of its large size. In front of Jeongdongjin Station, in front of Sandglass Park and a sea with Jeongdongjin breakwater.

It first became a popular tourist attraction for people as the filming location of the SBS drama ‘Sandglass’ in 1995. Since then, the park in front of the filming location has been named Sandglass Park.

Also, the ‘sandglass beach’ is convenient to use because it has a large sandy beach and is often visited by many people.

Sandglass park, sculpture park in the south, and Hunhwa drive course are gathered, so you can see many tourist attractions in one place.

There is a park in hill, 700 meters south of Jeongdongjin. East sea, as well as beach and the train station, the coastal road will be seen at a glance

And there are also sculptures on display, which is why families and couples who visit Jeongdongjin visit this sculpture park.

The sculpture park has convenience facilities such as a snack bar, a train cafe, a sailing cafe, and a giant boat-shaped condo.

The Sun Cruise condominium, which has about 600 rooms, has been completed to accommodate the guests.

The sailboat cafe is shaped like a real boat and consists of restaurants, cafes, and an observatory.

Even though it is a ship on land and a model, if you take a picture in front of it, you feel like you are floating on the sea.

There are so many two boat-shaped buildings, apparently because they are near the sea. Even if you imagine, you can’t hide your surprise if you actually see it.

Jeongdongjin Beach is a place where Jeongdongjin coastal terrace, designated as Natural Monument No.437, is connected to the area, and a carved down cliff of rocks is worth seeing.

Breakwater and small fishing boats are common, so you can feel the atmosphere of a small fishing village. As it is a beach, you can enjoy the cool water play in the middle of summer with your family, lover, and friends and enjoy the night sea.
