Jeju has a lot of excellent spots to go camping. The coast is especially popular and many of Jeju’s larger beaches have dedicated places to pitch a tent. Inland spots are a little harder to find although with the amount of beautiful countryside on Jeju there are still plenty of sites available.

However, what if you don’t have a tent?

Alongside the rise of camping, glamping has also become hugely popular on the island. For those that don’t know, glamping is a portmanteau of glamor and camping.

It is an activity that allows people to combine many of the best aspects of camping, such as being close to nature, with some of the home comforts many people miss when camping.

Of course, its other major advantage, especially when traveling to Jeju from another country or the mainland, is that you don’t have to bring a tent with you yet can still have a camping experience.

Here are some of the best spots for both camping and glamping during your vacation on Jeju.

Firstly, the beach itself is spectacular. The white sand is some of the purest on Jeju and the seawater is some of the clearest. This all combines with views of Biyangdo Island and Jeju’s black volcanic rock formations to give a view that is unique to this part of Jeju.While many of Jeju’s beaches have spaces dedicated for camping, the campsite at Hyeopjae Beach is perhaps the best of the lot.

The campsite itself is situated just behind a stretch of sand that is slightly west of Hyeopjae Beach. This is away from the crowds found on the two main strips which make it the perfect place for a relaxed evening in the sun.
