Last Saturday was my birthday, and I spent the weekend with friends at Daecheon Beach on the western coast of Korea. Saturday was perfect beach weather, and the day ended with this gorgeous sunset.

Sunset, Daecheon Beach, Korea

Daecheon beach is also home to the famous Boryeong Mud Festival. Every July thousands gather to wallow in the beaches’s famous mud. Rumor has it that the mud has special qualities that will give you the glowing skin you’ve always wanted. If you’re ever in Korea in July, get muddy! While accommodation at Daecheon Beach can be a little pricey, budget travelers will be happy to know that the festival is FREE.

    This beauty of a sunset makes me want to leave my island and come to Korea. Groan. Rainy season here !

    A mud festival – only if its good for the skin.

  6. Happy belated wishes – I hope you had a lovely day. That sunset is awesome. It must have been stunning to watch it go down. Did you roll in the mud to get a shiny skin? Wondering if it works and how much a person can glow after getting muddy. Best wishes for this new year.
