Cheju-Island

We might have been under the sun too much . . .

We are officially dark from being on the beach and site seeing the area, but that’s okay we needed a tan anyways. So today we headed over to Suwolbong Peak and Chagwi Beach. We both love the beach and since Cheju-Island consists of beaches and water, then we might as well make the most of it.

Suwolbong is a small mountaintop and it is famous for being a favourite sunset viewing place.(1) The mountain has vertical cliffs spreading out like a scroll painting which was created from the sea waves. I stood on one of the cliffs and I was stunned by the scenery, it was absolutely beautiful and worth seeing. We spent half of the day just sitting on the cliffs and taking a bunch of pictures. We even met a few tourists like ourselves.

The rest of the day we headed off to the Chagwido Island located to the north and off the coast. Chadgwido Island is where only the top peak area has grass growing and the rest of the island is made up of dark rocks and cliffs. Some locals were saying how this place was famous for fishing during January, March, June and December.(2) As we waited long enough for the sun to set we stood on one of peaks and as we overlooked the seashore was the color red along with the sun. Too bad both of our cameras ran out batteries. Boo!
