It takes 45-60 minutes to hike around the whole trail. The trail is diverse in the scenes that it presents along different coastal views. Brace yourself for high wind speeds during the colder months. There are a lot of inclines/declines on the trail so be wary of that on the way. There are a couple of restaurants/eateries spotted along mid-trail... More

The hike is normal, suitable to old people and kids. The view from above is beautiful. You can learn about history as well.

We visited Songaksan on an extremely windy day... The winds were so strong, we felt like we were gonna get blown away any second! The scenery is beautiful, and there are no crowds. Serene and peaceful.

There is a easy trail around there, takes about an hour and you can enjoy lovely scenery of cliffs and sea, watch the yellow submarine dive (different times of day). There is a seafood place serving sashimi along the trail too. Plenty of photo opp.

This is one of my wife's favourite walks. A lovely, circular amble around the Songaksan peninsula, mostly on boardwalks and steps. Lovely views of the unique geology of the cliffs. Can see pheasants, cormorants, peregrine falcons and occasionally dolphins if you're lucky. You can walk up to the summit which affords stunning views back to Sangbansan and Hallasan (clear day...

I bumped into this place totally by chance. After we had lunch at Daejung, I took beach road to see the sea and when the car has just got over a hill, voila! an overwhelming spectacle captured my eyes. I could see Halla Mountain in remote, Sanbang Mountain girded with cliffs, picturesque islands floating in the crystal sea all in... More

The south western end of Jeju. The route to the crater look out is closed. From the google translation of the signage, it seems a proper new path will be built. If you want to walk around the whole area, please reserve 1-2 hours.
