Woljeongri Beach

Woljeongri Beach is a white and expansive beach area on the famous Jeju Island, South Korea. I can only say that you will love all beaches on this island just like this one.

You can search for the blue sea from the beach area as far as your eyes can see. You can have both the picturesque and panoramic views of the sea and the island's natural beauty.

Being a spacious and relaxing area, you will find it very peaceful and serene. Even during the peak summer season, you will discover that Woljeongri Beach is not crowded and noisy despite its popularity!

Coming here is not a problem as it is located by the rural roadside. But it is not a congested area. You can reach via public transportations (bus or taxi) from anywhere on the island.

Cafes, Shops, and Eateries

Don't worry about anything you need for your day's beach relaxation activity. You can purchase your basic needs from the shops and other small suppliers nearby.

You won't miss seeing the cafes, eateries, convenience shops, beach facility rental shops, and street vendors across the beach.

Relax with a hot or iced Cappuccino at a coffee shop while gazing towards the white beach and turquoise sea and enjoying the cool sea breeze caressing your skin.

Also, you can stay overnight or longer at any accommodation facilities nearby, including a motel, bed and breakfast, condo, among others.

A Legend of Woljeong's Origin

It is said that Woljeong Village ('ri') was a name given by a schoolmaster who composed a poem about the place.

According to the legend, Won Bong, the schoolmaster, noticed while composing his poem that the village resembles a half-moon when seen from the sea.

Literally, the word "woljeongri" means a village with a beautiful half-moon seaside shape.

Story has it that due to Woljeongri's geographical location, locals can see the moon for half a month, that means fifteen nights of moonlight a month.

Now, let me describe to you how to get there from Jeju International Airport below.
