Soaking up under the sun!

Cheju-Island

We finally arrived here in Cheju Island (Jeju-do). We took the ferry from Gyeongju and here we are. This island is filled with scenic beaches, waterfalls, cliffs and caves which is known to be a very popular place for tourists. The first thing I really want to do is find the closest beach and relax! It feels like we have done so much the last few weeks and I really just want to sit by the water and relax.

Our destination for the day is Hyeopjae Beach. It is located on the west side of Hanrim-eup and is part of the Hanrim Park. The white sandy beach is about 20 meters long and the water is 1.2 meters deeps.(1) On the plus side since Hanrim Park is nearby half of the day we explored the Hyeopjaegul cave and Sangyonggul Cave and it was such a great experience. One cool fact we both learned today was since the seashore to the southwest of the Hyeopjae Beach connects to another beach called Geumreung Beach, both beaches are combined getting the name Hyeopjae Beach.(2)

Here's some pictures for you to enjoy!
