Shesokak |Jeju Island|

This will be the first in a series of posts on my latest vacation: Jeju Island, Korea. Yay! Shesokak isn’t exactly a river, but it’s as beautiful as one and acts as a gorgeous entryway to the ocean off the black sanded coast of Jeju. Located in the southern area, near Seogwipo-si, this beach boasts smooth, flat rocks, lighthouses, green water and hot, black sand. This isn’t a place for swimming but you can go paddling in the small area of Shesokak in clear canoes, paddle boats or a large pontoon boat (from 5-10,000 won). We were there early and the wait did not seem too bad but I hear it gets quite crowded. Although we didn’t paddle or canoe, the scenery made the trip worthwhile. The walk down the “river” is green and lush.  While the beach looks very tropical, of course, with the palm trees, the land surrounding Shesokak is like a thick forest. It’s an interesting contrast and makes for beautiful pictures. You can see more pictures on my Flickr Page.  Shesokak, Jeju-do …
