Strengths:The one-two punch of Suwolbong and Dangsanbong overlooking Chagwido and the other collection of islands can be considered in the running for Jeju’s best natural beauty spot. Although not, consider the space between both oreum a lush valley of lustral sites in Chagwido’s port and surrounding coastal area.
Weaknesses: The 12 or so kilometers before reaching Suwolbong are bland, a long, forgettable stretch once past. Overall, a lot of construction happening around this Olle site, a sign of development which does not aid in Olle’s cause.
English learning opportunities:Jeju Culture and Experience Center in Mureung-2-ri, Dowon Pond, Noknambong, Jagunae Port, Ungangil, Suwolbong (multiple), Chagwido (multiple), Yongdang Port, Saengyigijeong sea trail, Jeolbuam
Quotable:“Suwolbong is locally known as an excellent place to watch the sun set into the sea behind the picturesque Chagwido, three uninhabited islands to the northwest. After Sarabong oreum located in Jeju City, Suwolbong is considered the next best place on the island to watch a sunset. But there are things to see and do at Suwolbong at anytime of the day.” -- Colleen Hyde, Jeju Weekly
