I've visited this place many times and every time I love it. So pretty, the best view and a really nice garden as well. The only downside is the strong wind so I don't recommend any hats and warm clot...
We were amazed by the hexagonal shaped columns of the cliff here. There are well-maintained boardwalks that one takes to the cliffside. We were there around sunset and the views out into the ocean is ...
At the base of this cliff is the Jisatgae Coast along with the imposing stone pillars. Jusangjeolli are stone pillars piled up along the coast and is a designated cultural monument of Jeju Island. Jusangjeolli Cliff was formed when the lava from Hallasan Mountain erupted into the sea of Jungmun. They are rock pillars shaped like cubes or hexagons of various sizes and almost seem as if stone masons had carved them out. #wintergetaway
Jeju Island columnar joint zone, nature is wonderful
travel to the Chinese area of Jeju Island, must go to the columnar joint belt of the beach to have a look. It can be seen that the stone pillars piled up on the coast, the blue sea rushed to the waves, and the white waves smashed as if the stone was carved by the stonemason, which made people exclaim that this is a miracle of nature. The roadside is still a tourist, no wonder the Chinese tourist area is a place where Korean locals like honeymoon. One of the high-end boutique hotels abounds, the second is the sparsely populated, extremely quiet. The ecological environment is also very good, you can see cockroaches, butterflies and birds everywhere. Stone pillars piled up on the coast, where you can see many people fishing by the sea. The columnar joint belt is a famous attraction. There is a visitor center. We bought a super delicious grilled squid and orange-flavored omelet from a South Korean uncle. Really very delicious! highly recommended.

On the two-kilometer coast between the Chinese Cave and Dapu Cave, there is a black rock belt of 1,000 meters long, which is the most famous natural wonder of Jeju Island, the columnar joint belt. The formation of the
columnar joint zone is actually the principle of thermal expansion and contraction. When the crater of the Halla Mountain volcano, the highest peak of Jeju Island, erupted hundreds of thousands of years ago, it sprayed a magma with a temperature higher than 900 degrees and rapidly cooled into the sea, so there was The most amazing natural landscape of Jeju Island today.
Follow the signs and walk along the boardwalk to the edge of the cliff. One of the platforms is the best place to watch the columnar joints. It is right next to me. Looking closely at the columnar joint belt standing in the sea, I have to marvel at how wonderful the magic of nature is. The sea water slaps on the neatly arranged stone pillars, picking up the white waves, and slamming the shore, leaving only the sound of the waves.

Thanks to nature's ingenuity, let us see the magical sight, the columnar joint belt is such an amazing existence. It is the result of the magma erupting from the crater and flowing into the coast of Seogwipo, where the seawater rapidly cools and shrinks. When the waves are raging, the waves can be as high as 10 meters. This scene is really amazing.
