Our weekend at the beach was outstanding. The weather could not have been better. As an extra bonus, it was a full moon. This meant fantastic tides, both high and low. During low tide it was possible to walk out at least a quarter mile, possibly more. My Nikon D90 is not working very well these days, so I “caught” most of the weekend with my Iphone.
Hand gliding is a popular sport in Korea, and these gliders took advantage of the great weather and the low tide.
We enjoyed mouth watering seafood barbecued at the table. For 20.00 each we had more than we could possibly ever eat. Out of sight was a bowl piled high, just waiting to go on the barbie. The beer was cheap and cold, too!
If you tire of seafood, or it isn’t to your liking, you can opt for Korean barbecued pork belly; samgyeopsal.
Including beer, we spent $15.00 per person, and we were stuffed when we walked out of the restaurant. To find out more about this favorite Korean food…Samgyeopsal
The beach is crowded at night, and with the very low tide you can walk way out.
If you ever wanted to shoot off your own fireworks, this is the place to do it!
And finally, we spent a wonderful morning at the “Mud Spa”. Daecheon Beach is known for its mud. In fact, the Boryeong Mud Festival is held here in July every year. I loved the spa, and it is a post all by itself; coming soon.
Travel Tip…Getting to Daecheon Beach from either Seoul or Daejeon is very easy. It’s a quick two hour train or bus ride to Boryeong-Si, and then a 10 minute ride on a local bus to the beach. Our bus ride from Daejeon was a very affordable $12.00 each way. If you are coming from Seoul by train, expect to pay a little over $20.00 each way.
