Jeongdongjin Beach, Gangneung
(4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Other beaches are large compared to the benefits. Dong on January 1st, because it means that the tourists too much discomfort. Here you can see the Sunrise does not mean ... There are many tasty restaurants nor other tourist and not in the streets. I'd love to take you to go one up here.

  • Cute little sea side town with quirky attractions, nice beach and lots of local restaurants but not a lot of English 
  • Sunrise, but normally renowned for its quiet and peaceful. Watching the sea than to enjoy a dip Cup of tea is a great place to be. Get ready to go because there was no nearby cafes.
