    Easy walk with gorgeous coastal views of rocks and teal colour sea
    After visiting Seongsan IIchulbong, we took a taxi here and really enjoyed walking the flat coastal trail. It is made of red volcanic ash called “scoria”, and possesses strange rock formations that only show themselves when the tide is low. A good photo spot includes the view of the Candy house. Next to the lighthouse, you can observe the Seonbawi Rock. It is a delight to climb the wooden steps up to the lighthouse and come down by a metallic staircase. Continuing our walk we soon reached the Glass House designed by renowned architect, Tadao Ando. Here there is Mint cafe on the ground floor and Mint restaurant on the upper floor. We had coffee at the cafe. The restaurant also served coffee after lunch hour to 4 pm but it is more costly compared to that at Mint cafe. Next to this building is the MInt Garden with a huge orange circular structure and a swing in the centre. Many people took the opportunity to take a photo sitting on the swing with Seongsan IIchulbong in the background. After that we waiting outside this building for the shuttle bus to Pheonix Hotel where we could get a taxi. The timing for shuttle bus is 5 mins, 25 mins and 45 mins past the hour. While waiting for the bus, we discovered the canola field nearby. We could take a photo among the canola flowers with either Seongsan iIchulbong or the lighthouse in the background. Highly recommend this easy coastal walk in the Eastern Jeju and it is free to enter.

    Came for the view, stayed for the food
    It was a short hike going up, although it's not an entirely even path. The views are wonderful but not necessarily breathtaking, photos turned out beautiful though. There are a few food stalls nearby. Interesting to try but definitely a place where they expect a lot of tourists. Overall, it was an interesting place to visit.

    Cape Seopjikoji
    A car is essential for discovering the natural wonders of Jeju Island, Seopjikoji is located Southeast of Seongsan. After parking in the small and at capacity carpark we made our way passed a few restaurants to the start of the sealed path which extends along the exposed red volcanic rock coastline. On the day of our visit it was blowing a gale and the path was crowded and congessed making passing difficult and unpleasant at times. Our group took the time go off track and explore Hyeopja Yeondae Smoke Signal Stations from the Joseon period (Special Monument No 23-2). At the end of the trail was a lighthouse.

Nice walk and not crowded. From the carpark to the tip, about 45 min slow pace each way. Very good sea and cliff views. The wind is strong so watch out for your hats

A hiking trail and the highlight is the glass house and lighthouse at the 'start', or in our case, the end, since we parked at the other side. In fact we didn't even make it to that end and saw the 2 landmarks at a distance.

On our end, we passed by a Candy House that now looks like a haunted house being defunct and empty now.

We turned back after seeing the Lava Column. Legend has it that the son of the sea god turned into stone because his love for a nymph was unreturned. A sad love story turned into a beautiful sight.

When we arrived, we discovered that it was about to close for the night, so we went for a quick walk around and took photos as the sun set. There is a flim site as you walk further in. Probably left there for photo ops for those familiar with the show. There are also some food stalls near the car park area.

The walk along the trail at Seopjikoji was easy and relaxing. You get beautiful views of the coast, there's a Hansel and Gretel like house and a lighthouse. It is mostly flat and suitable for young children and elderly. Children will also enjoy the horse riding activities available. When we visited at sunset, you get a beautiful view of the setting sun. You also get a good view of restaurant Mint which is part of Phoenix Seopjikoji.

Seopjikoji plays second fiddle to Sunrise Peak as the popular tourist attraction in Seongsan. I actually liked it a lot better because you can actually get a great look at the Sunrise Peak from Seopjikoji Cape. The two resorts (one of them looking abandoned) on the area is a bit of an eye sore but the eastern end of it has some spectacular views. A picturesque house that was a filming location for a Korean TV show is a popular photo spot along with the lighthouse and the rock formations on the water.
