Create an itinerary including Jeongdongjin Beach
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.

  • Jeongdongjin is also famous for being a famous sunrise spot in Korea. When the new year comes, many people come to Jeongdongjin to see the sun. It is also famous for its sunrise attractions, but it is also exotic, so it is good to see the beach. You can enjoy rail bikes, drives, and train trips in Jeongongjin.
  • It was my first beach visit in korea. Was so memorable specially the sea food.
  • Small place.. best thing is can go there by KTX (high speed train) in 1.5hours from Seoul. Many hotels are near the station. Clean sea. I recommend only for off season.
  • Steeper beach with large waves and many large rocks to climb in the water. The rail bike was fun. Get there early to avoid crowds.
  • Oldtime famous sightseeing place for watching sunrise. Still beautiful and better than other beaches as less crowded and clean.
