  • Information
    Sokcho Beach, opened for swimming on July 1, 1976, is a short 500 meter walk from Sokcho Express Bus Terminal. The white sand beach stretchs for over 2 kilometers, with 1 kilometer being open for the public. Many people visit the beach for its quality sand and easy access.

    Sokcho Beach plays an important role in displaying Sokcho-si as a great tourist area, along with Seoraksan Mountain, Cheoksan Hot Springs, Cheongchoho Lake, and Yeongrangho Lake, among other attractions. On the bulwark, to the left of the beach, there are many places where you can enjoy hwaleo hoe (fresh sashimi). You can also enjoy sea fishing by taking a boat to Jodo Island in the open-sea area by the beach.
