Create an itinerary including Jeongdongjin Beach
Go for a walk along Jeongdongjin Beach in the early morning to see the sunrise and its reflection on the water. The break of day provides the beach's most spectacular moment, but you can enjoy the calm atmosphere and entertaining surroundings no matter when you visit. Find the old railway station, whose tracks follow the coastline, and learn about the history of transport in this part of the country. Don't miss the local harbor, where you can meet local fishermen and perhaps go sailing. The beach and its surroundings host numerous festivals year-round, namely religious ceremonies for prosperity, and the celebration of the solstice.

  • After all the hours of walking and seeing at other sightseeing spots in Korea, naturally, this beach was a breather. For relaxing and unwinding, plus, water playing and taking pictures. Quite a nice place. Otherwise, there's nothing much to do. Maybe, you want to idle your time away by sitting by the beach
  • I love the beach! The blue sea is beautiful. And the sound of the waves is so nice. I wanted to stay a bit longer. I can't forget the memories.^^ There is a train station nearby, and I want to take a train next time.
