Fire Festival/Jeongwol Daeboreum Fire Festival
The Jeju Fire Festival is the biggest yearly event in Jeju and indulging in this activity is a great way to make the most of your Jeju experience. The festival marks the end of the harvesting season when the local farmers burn surplus harvested grass off in order to ward off insects (and evil spirits). Witnessing this festival is a memorable experience. The event is typically held in February and you can check up with the local information bureau in order to sync your travel with the time of the festival.
Scuba diving is one of the most sought-after activities on the island. BigBlue33 is a dive trip service provider that conducts dive trips in Korean, English and German.
Take the Submarine Tour
Jeju has got splendid waters and boasts some really diverse underwater life. Taking an underwater submarine tour is one of the best ways to explore the divine waters of Jeju. The tour operates at a depth of about 30 metres and the submarine travels about 2.8km in all. The ocean awaits you with corals, many types of fish and enchanting underwater sculptures. Be there to discover a whole new world altogether.
Some people (mostly newlyweds) visit Jeju Island primarily because of this eccentric and erotic attraction alone. Loveland comprises 140 explicit sculptures created by the students of architecture at Seoul University. If you are not clear about the concept of the sculptures at Loveland, here’s a tip: Don’t visit the place with your parents! Loveland makes for a great outing with your close friends and offers some rather interesting photo shoot options. The sculptures are sometimes shocking but you will have a great time if you’re not too prudish. If you are travelling with children, you can leave them at an attached children’s amusement park.

The word ‘Koji’ means cape in Korean and the Seopjikoji is one of the most famous capes in the country, largely because the cape and its surroundings was the backdrop for the famous ‘All In’ TV drama series. One of the most enchanting things to do here is take a walk by the sea – it actually makes you feel that you are becoming one with Nature with all its elements playing their part in tandem.
Visit Sunrise Peak
Though every hill station/island in the world has its sunset and sunrise points, Sunrise Peak in Jeju offers a mix of two activities – trekking and watching the sunrise. The sunrise however, is not visible every day because it is mostly foggy at the peak. The climb, however, is an interesting one, comprising a trekking route or an alternate stairway of almost 600 steps. Be sure to take loads of water, warm clothing and snacks in order to make the most of your climb.
