Hamdeok Seoubong Beach is located just over 50 minutes’ drive away from Jeju International Airport in the direction of Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone. The beach is perfect for beginner swimmers and touring families as the waters are only waist-high even away from shore.

Delmoondo & Bora Roof

Café Delmoondo scenery

Located at Hamdeok Seoubong Beach, Café Delmoondo is the perfect spot to relax. A sip of an icy cold drink while taking in the ocean view from Café Delmoondo’s terrace is its own reward.

Bora Roof

Gimnyeong Seongsegi Beach is famous for its cobalt blue waters. Every summer, the beach is filled with people looking to swim, surf, paddle board, and enjoy other aquatic activities. For something really special, we recommend the yacht tour. Aboard the yacht, you can try your hand at sea fishing, or simply keep your eyes peeled for sightings of the dolphins that naturally swim here.

Woljeongri Beach
