7. Try Jeju’s specialty – black pork!

things to do in jeju - eat black pork

Every region in South Korea is famous for a certain type of food, and in Jeju, there is one that you cannot miss: black pork.

This is a rare type of pork that is said to be the best in South Korea, and is usually grilled in thick pieces over charcoal – traditionally, it would be grilled over a burning hay. The smoke from the charcoal or burning hay penetrates inside the red meat to create a unique flavour that you don’t get from other KBBQ places.

To get the best black pork, head to downtown Jeju City – there is a special place called Heukdwaeji Geori (흑돼지거리) or Black Pork Street, where all the restaurants lined up serve – you guessed it – black pork!

This is certainly a highlight of the best things to do in Jeju!

8. Conquer Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak (Sunrise Peak)…

things to do in jeju - sunrise peak

Seongsan Ilchulbong is said to have the best views of the sunrise on the island. As it is located on Jeju’s eastern side, it has the earliest dawn on the island as well, so you’ll find many people headed up an hour before sunrise to see dawn break from its peak.

In fact, sunrise on New Year’s Day is particularly special, as it’s said that the first people to glimpse the sun coming over the horizon will have good luck for the coming year! So if you’re planning a trip for early next year, this should definitely be on your list of things to do in Jeju!

Although the slopes of Seongsan Ilchulbong are steep, steps have been built up the crater to ease your climb. The peak is 182 metres above sea level, and the hike to the top shouldn’t take you longer than 45 minutes. There are frequent rest stops and benches that look out over the sea on the ascending pathway, so you can sit down and admire the breathtaking scenery that Jeju is famous for.

9. …then attempt Hallasan

things to do in jeju - hallasan

This active volcano is popular with honeymooning couples, but don’t be mistaken – this is no walk in the park, and can be one of the most exhausting treks to take if you ever attempt it.

Hallasan is South Korea’s tallest mountain, so its distinctive volcanic crater peak can be seen no matter where you are on Jeju Island – it’s even visible from the South Korean mainland!

The most beautiful seasons to attempt Hallasan are fall and winter: in fall, the whole of Hallasan is blanketed by a colorful display of flowers and warm fall foliage, whereas the snow-covered mountain in winter makes for a dazzling sight to behold. As such, even though it is incredibly tiring, attempting to climb Hallasan is still considered to be one of the most exciting things to do in Jeju!

10. Immerse in tea at O’sulloc Tea Museum

Although South Korea is often noted for its coffee culture, it is traditionally a tea-drinking country that consumes a lot of green tea. At the tea museum, you can learn more about Korean tea, tea cups, and truly immerse yourself in the art of tea-making. It features an indoor garden, Tea Cup Gallery, and Tea Stone, which provide a fascinating look into South Korea’s tea culture.

Of course, no tea museum experience is complete without actually tasting the tea itself. You get to purchase freshly-harvested tea leaves roasted by a professional tea master on site, as well as enjoy the sumptuous drinks and pastries at the bakery – the ice cream and green tea roll cake are customer favourites that you can’t miss!

14. Catch the Korean mermaids in action

things to do in jeju - korean mermaids

Seoul may be (arguably) famous for K-pop celebs, but the true celebrities here on Jeju are the haenyeo – sea women who catch seafood for a living with only a knife while holding their breath – otherwise affectionately called Korean mermaids!

Once known as the bread-winners of Jeju Island, supporting both family and community with their trade, the haenyeo were also prized as Jeju’s secret revolutionaries. Schooled at night, the haenyeo were selected by a secret organisation to protect the island against the Japanese Occupation.

These days, the women continue to forage the deep ocean floors for abalone and shellfish to sell at the market, but what makes them a sight to marvel at is the fact that all of them are well over the age of 50 (!) but can still free dive down to about 20 meters for minutes, a feat that not even all experienced divers can achieve.

You can actually catch them in action at Seongsan Ilchulbong, but take note that this is not a staged performance – you are getting the rare opportunity to see them hard at work!

Address: Seongsan Ilchulbong Peak (78 Seongsan-ri, Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do, South Korea)

16. Have a good laugh at Jeju Love Land

things to do in jeju - jeju love land

Here’s a quirky attraction that you really wouldn’t want to bring your kids to: Jeju Love Land!

The name says it all: this is a themed sculpture park based on sensuality and eroticism, opened by twenty artists mainly from South Korea’s top art school (Hongik University) in 2004. It was the first such museum in South Korea, and some of the more explicit sculptures created a huge sensation at that time.

Over time, people came to accept this park and it has been turned into one of the top things to do in Jeju that many highly recommend – you’re guaranteed a good time laughing at how ridiculous some of these statues look, and they may even make for a funny photo op that you won’t get anywhere else!

18. Lose your breath at Jeongbang Waterfalls

things to do in jeju - jeongbang waterfall

Jeongbang Waterfall is one of Jeju’s top three waterfalls, and is the only waterfall in South Korea where water falls directly into the sea. At 23m high, there are two streams of waterfalls that fall down the black cliff to create a soothing gushing sound. Coupled with the steep cliffs and old pine trees, this is one of the most picturesque places in Jeju where you can marvel at nature’s creations.

Of course, such an amazing place comes with its own fair share of legends: a man named Seobul was said to have come to the island in search of an elixir plant on the orders of China’s Qin Shi Huangdi a long time ago. Unable to find the elixir plant, he headed west to return to China but was captivated by the site of Jeongbang Waterfalls, leading to him writing “Seobulgwacha’ (which means Seobul, passing by) on the cliff. These words have yet to be found in real life, but who knows – you may be the one to find them if they really do exist!

Besides its star power, the cafe itself is also popular for its astounding views of the sea, which are absolutely spectacular when the sun sets.

However, take note that the cafe is really out of the way and it is quite a long drive along the coastline, so it’s not easily accessible by public transport – you may want to hire a personal driver or hail a taxi in order to get there.
