  • Nice beach, good surroundings, populous but not overcrowded. Water is clean, and an... Interesting amount of seaweed. Also some great pork barbecue restaurants in the area.
  • So beautiful place with blue sea water. The thing about Hamdeok Beach is that if you arrive in the evening, you’re likely to think that there isn’t much of a beach.. or beaches in the area but that’s because the tide has come in and covered it up on the western end. Hamdeok has three small beaches that don’t get taken over by the tide in the evening and the two to the east are the most popular by far. If you come in on that end of Hamdeok, you’re likely to think it’s too busy and want to leave during high season. I’d tell you to keep walking west and you’ll like what you see though. If you want your own space, go as far west as you can. That’s just what we did and it was spectacular.
  • First time here and Love It!! Really recommend to visit this place for the beach and the food. Any restaurant here should be awesome but make sure you go to the restaurants with lots of people...usually the better place attracts more people.
  • May be the best beach on Jeju. Subtropical beach with lots of food nearby. There are 3 main beaches and more water access points. At the main beach, the water is clear in the morning and clouds up throughout the day; the water is watched by half a dozen life guards on the main beach in the middle. You can rent a beach umbrella spot for around $30,000 so you can spend all day at the beach without burning. Rentals are available for various watersports, but they are expensive, like $50,000 an hour for a kayak. Around the beach are many restaurants, focused on black pork or seafood.
  • Fantastic beach just East of Jeju City. We saw HyeopJae and Gumnung beaches on this trip as well, but Hamdeok was by far the nicest. Low tide is excellent for little ones because there is a huge amount of sandy play space. Other beaches just get rocky. The local area around Hamdeok also has more, and nicer restaurants in my opinion. Coffee shops abound, and there are a couple local marts nearby if you prefer to cook in your pension/hotel.
