The crashing waves at Daepo Jusangjeollie Cliff

This is one of the famous nature sights here in Jeju and it is really crowded. I got lucky and managed to get a parking lot just as I entered the car park. Phew! I don’t know how long I would have to wait if no one decided to leave at that moment.

Here, you can see the black stone pillars along the Jisatgae coast. Just follow the crowd and you will pass by these shops below.0676

Once you enter the park, you’ll be greeted by these dolphins.

Walk through the park to a long staircase leading you down to see the cliffs.

The cliffs are formed when the lava from Mount Hallasan erupted into the sea. The cliff looks like black columns of different sizes and heights grouped together. It reminds me of charcoal, actually. Its amazing how they were formed naturally. It takes a lot of patience to take a photo here since the platform is very crowded.

We managed to snap a few photos. We then climbed back up and took a walk in the park. There was a stall with an ajumma selling seafood that I had never seen before. They ate it raw with that red sauce. I don’t dare to try fearing the raw seafood might cause me to have an upset stomach.

It was a nice stroll around the park. You can still see the cliffs from up here too. I saw a few groups of old folks walking around teasing and laughing with each other. There was also another group with one of them singing an old folk song and dancing  while the rest that were sitting around him clap along to him. Its nice to see people enjoying themselves.
