During the summer months Jeju is a great place to be. Walking Jeju's Olle Trails, relaxing on one of the island's beaches, or cycling on its many bike paths are all popular pastimes during the hottest season of the year.
However, if you can pull yourself away from these activities for a moment then it could be a great idea to check out one of the island's summer festivals.
Music, nature, and sports are all covered in our list of the Jeju's top summer festivals and events meaning that there really is something for everyone!
Jeju Stepping Stone Festival

The Stepping Stone Festival is a real highlight of the Jeju calendar as some of the country's finest bands put on a performance on the ever beautiful Hamdeok Beach.
This year the festival will be held over two days seeing performances on both Friday and Saturday night after its expansion to two days last year.
The festival will run on July 7 and 8 and will, as usual, be completely free.

The Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival is a wind instrument festival that takes place across the island from Aug. 8 till 16. Some of the locations include Jeju Arts Center, Seogwipo Cheonjiyeon Waterfall, and Jeju Seaside Arts Theatre.
Geomun Oreum is one of Jeju’s UNESCO Natural Heritage Sites due to its unique volcanic structure and the existence of lava tubes in the area.
Normally visitors to the site are required to book a spot in advance, with a limited number of places each day. However, during the festival dates, visitors can simply turn up and, once registered, enjoy the Oreum freely.
The festival this year will run from July 1 to July 10 and entrance will be completely free.
