Located on the eastern end of Jeju Island, about an hour and a half drive from Jeju city, sits Seongsan Ilchulbong; otherwise known as Sunrise or Sunset Peak. Now considered to be one of the new 7 wonders of nature, Sunset Peak, as we will refer to it, was also declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site with it’s incredible 600m diameter crater at its highest point.
When you walk into the vicinity of Sunset Peak, you’ll find a number of tourist-catered cafes and shops catering to the groups of tourists that now flock to the area, whilst panoramic views await you just a further few steps away. What’s more, if you’re visiting Sunset Peak around 1:30 or 3pm, you can catch a glimpse of the Haenyo Divers – local Jeju women diving into the waters to catch fresh abalone, octopus or crabs. There’s a trail opposite the main hike that will lead you down to the island’s bay, where you can perch yourselves and watch the divers disappear into the green waters, or hop on a boat and take a quick ride around the area.
