After having an unpleasant camping experience at Jungmun Beach
, we finally got what we want for in beach camping. It was such a beautiful place, we ended up staying here for 2 nights. If we had the time we would've stayed here longer.
A couple of teens approached us at our campsite. We guessed that they were sent to charge us for camping. But they couldn't speak english and perhaps embarassed so they just left. I wouldn't mind paying to camp here. It's worth it.
The beach was packed with lava rocks but in the morning until the afternoon, the tide was low and the water was warm. You could stay on the white and very fine sand far from the main land. It even seem possible to swim across to the nearby Biyangdo Island.
Beside Geumneung Beach is the much busier Hyeopjae Beach. It also has a campground and it is closer to the stores and bars. Geumneung Beach is preferred for a more relaxing camping experience.
In the afternoon of our second day here, we went to visit Hallim Park
. This park is very close to the beach. In fact it's just across the street.
