Hello everyone! We are Creatrip, your group of Korean travel experts.


Unsure where to go on a hot summer day? It's time to head on over to the beaches! Beaches are perfect for cooling down the summer heat and feasting on some beautiful sights.

Because there aren't many beaches in Seoul, Koreans often visit beaches near the coasts in Busan or Jeju.

Busan is well known for its beaches, but Jeju Island is also a popular choice. For those of you planning your trip to Jeju in the summer, I've gathered the opening times of the Jeju beaches in 2019.

The "Iho Tewoo Beach" is very close to the Jeju International Airport, and is the nearest beach to Jeju City. Getting from the city to beach is easy, but the beach itself is quite small. It's great for those of you who want to take a quick break from the city to enjoy some waves!
