Day 3Jeju Island
Explore the west part of Jeju Island today. Meet your private tour guide at the hotel lobby and head off for your day of adventure. Admire the beauty of the aquamarine ocean from Hyeopjae Beach, said to be the most beautiful on the island and worth a stroll with crushed seashells and white sand beneath you. Hallim Park is one of the most popular places to visit on Jeju Island, a beautiful oasis of greens and browns waiting to be explored by foot or trolley. Learn the art of tea-making and the history of the beverage, at the O’Sulloc Tea Museum which is shaped like a tea cup, and savour a refreshing cup and enjoy a tour of the Green Tea Plantation. Let the Yongmeori Coast take your breath away as you explore the “Dragon’s Cliff”, a volcanic creation of stratified rock that is a must-see on any tour to the west. Another breathtaking sight is that of the Jusangjeolli Cliff. Water laps against the columns of rock seemingly foaming as it falls back into the sea. Make a stop at the Jeongbang Waterfall, a treat to feast your eyes upon as you wrap up your tour of the western part of Jeju Island. A spectacular height of 23 metres, this body of water is famous among visitors and while swimming is not recommended, you can get up close and create a perfect photo opportunity. After a busy day of exploring, return to your hotel for overnight.
