A pristine enclave of natural beauty, Taejongdae sits on the southernmost point of the island, a sheer cliff face looking out to the meeting point of the East China Sea and the Sea of Japan. Walking trails lead through thick pine forests and offer access to scenic lookouts and a contemporary lighthouse on the rugged coastline. Uncover the area on foot, then take to the open ocean on a short cruise from the park's ferry terminal.

  • I visit this place so often when I lived in Busan. I think I have visited this place for more than 5 times. The first time, I come with my Indonesian and Singaporean friends, and the second time, I go there with my Hong Kong and Korean friends, and then I cannot remember again. LOL. But, hey, this place was so beautiful, especially when sunset comes! The gradation of the sky color was so mesmerizing. But you should be careful of your steps especially when you go to the area with so many rocks. And you also should be careful of the wind! And you should also try the Seafood (Haemul) Ramyeon that available at the cafetaria. It was delicious and refreshing!
  • South of Nampo lies Yeongdo Island, connected to the mainland by a bascule bridge which can lift to let large ships into Busan Port. At the southern tip of Yeongdo Island, facing the South Sea, Taejongdae Resort Park is one of the most popular places in Busan to take in coastal views. A small train on wheels carries visitors on a loop road to two coastal lookout points offering awe-inspiring views and a lighthouse. A third stop provides access to a serene forest temple.
