The complete list of 20 beaches, complete with map, will be online this weekend. -- Ed.
Get your sunscreen, your hat and folding chair ready. Swimming season is here, and Jeju has 20 top-notch beaches for you to enjoy. Of course, there are innumerable smaller coastal areas to explore, but you’ll find that even on the hottest days, when much of the population is on vacation, it will be rare to find the six-figure crowds that Busan’s Haeundae Beach is infamous for.
Take note: Beaches here are open to everyone, and using common sense you should be able to spend time on the beach or swim whenever you please. Still, be careful to obey any posted signs or directions from government personnel.
Jeju’s beach service areas open officially for the summer season from June 19 until Aug. 31 (that’s 74 days, folks). There are seven beaches with special services such as lifeguards, chairs, parasol rentals, showers and the like. They are Iho (from June 19), Hyeopjae (June 24), Geumneung (June 24), Gwakji (July 1), Samyang (July 1), Hamdeok (July 1) and Gimnyeong (July 1) beaches.
