Jusangjeolli Cliff is a natural wonder and a unique attraction on Jeju Island. Jusangjeolli is stone pillars piled up thousands of years ago when Hallasan Mountain was an active volcano.
This famous lava rock Cliff was designated as a natural monument in 2005 by the Korean government, signifying its cultural heritage.
These stone pillars, which can a found in Ireland called The Giant's Causeway, are located along the farm road about 600 meters to the Southwest from Daepo-dong.
Jusangjeolli in Daepo-dong is at the end of the pine tree forest.
You will see the Jisatgae Coast with the backdrop of the imposing stone
pillars below the Cliff.
The stone pillars are shaped during the eruption of Mount Halla. The forms are the result of interaction between the lava flowing into the sea and met with the seawater.
The pillars are in mostly in hexagons and some like cubes. Evidently, scientists have an explanation as to why lava and seawater produce such a marvelous shape or shapes.
Locals used to call Jusangjeolli as Jisatgae Rocks, which was the name given by the residents for a long time.
The Cliff is famous for sightseeing and various activities, including angling during high tide.
The Jusangjeolli cliff view is breathtaking when the strong waves of high tide crash into the imposing rock walls of the Cliff.
The Cliff is open to all visitors and travelers any time during the year. If you plan to drop by at this area while on your way to Jeju Island's other attractions, this would be a fabulous brief stopover. You can enjoy it for only 30 minutes or so.
