Jeongdongjin Beach, Gangneung

(3.8/5 based on 90+ 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. Use our Gangneung itinerary builder to add Jeongdongjin Beach and other attractions to your Gangneung vacation plans.

  • At the beginning of the year went to foreigners could place itself is good too. Even the weather was chilly, Lucky Sun sunny and it was really good. Just enough for a 40-to 50-looking group of people too much and I think you did not know the Korean words that foreigners just noticed you guide us go the same place who asked to say the law is different in the end take a taxi. If you go by car but why

  • A lot of people looking for a place where there's not much impressive, not much just made on the beach station is not so interesting places in La grunge.

  • Started out as an integral part of the name, such as beaches, jeongdongjin Beach shows too different kinds of scenery and good views.
