Jeongdongjin Beach, Gangneung

(95 reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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.
