  • These beautiful falls located at Seogwipo are within arm's reach of the beach! Cool environment, nice photo ops and a chance to breath fresh air straight from the ocean!

  • We were attracted by the promise from the literature that this was the only waterfall in Asia with 'debouches' into the ocean. Hmmm, you almost get the impression from above that some channel...

  • Pretty good stuff for an accessible waterfall. The surrounds are pleasant, it's cheap to get in, but it's busy in the summer months.

  • A must see place in jeju. The waterfall can be accessed without any hiking. Try visiting in the morning to avoid crowds and get a glimpse of the beautiful rainbow subtended by the falling droplets.
  • We went to several different waterfalls on Jeju and this is the best. Very easy to get to, with a large parking lot and then a short walk down some stairs. It was 2000 won to enter and there are ships at the entrance selling snacks and drinks.
  • This was a beautiful waterfall. It's a little dicey getting down to the base as the steps are wet and steep. Once you're down you can walk around on the rocks, but those are also wet and a little slippery. If you'd rather not risk a fall you can stop a few steps down and get a nice picture from an overlook.
  • A wonderful sight to see in Jeju. We went with a large group and had an amazing time. I would suggest going earlier in the day rather than later as the crowd isn't as large. I would also recommend close toed shoes as the rocks are of course very slippery.
  • Nice ecological creation of nature. Normal water and salty sea water is just 1 m away. Not so big but good to experience.
