Aewol Handam Park Trail

Aewol Handam Park Trail is a popular relaxation public area located in the northwest of Jeju Island. The park is also called Aewol Handam Coastal Trail since it is fantastic for walking along the coast.

If you love the sea views and sea breeze, you will undoubtedly find this area satisfying your wishes. One of Aewol Park's unique features is the contrasting colors between the blue seawater and the black rocks along the coast.
