ℹ️ Introduction 

Yeosu is a beautiful coastal city located in the southwest of Korea and it is famous for stunning views of the sea. It became more famous with the song ‘Yeosu Night Sea’ sang by a Korean singer-songwriter, Jang Beom June. Yeosu is absolutely a popular travel destination among Koreans, but it is relatively less known to foreigners.

The name Yeosu means "beautiful (yeo) waters (su)". As the name suggests, there’s an abundance of beautiful ocean views in Yeosu. The clean waters and countless uninhabited islands of the southern sea mean that Yeosu is full of great spots across land and water. Yeosu is renowned nationally for having some of the most picturesque places for driving, walking, trekking and swimming, as well as for appreciating the sunrise and night-time panoramas.

🏰 What to see and do ?

Yeosu, is itself a small peninsula consisting of the Yeosu Peninsula and 317 islands, all separated by mountains and sea.  In the 15th century it was the place of the Joseon Dynasty's Naval Headquarters and in the 16th century it served as the first base for the Great Admiral Yi Sun Shin, a Navy Commander, who saved the country from Japan’s invasion. 

Its beauty and uniqueness mostly remains undiscovered as most tourists visiting South Korea usually prefer to stay in Busan or Seoul. But ever since Yeosu hosted the 2012 World Expo, it has grown in popularity as an international ocean resort. If you want to experience plenty of nature, hiking and beautiful look out spots with countless islands to see, you have to visit Yeosu! Below are the highlights:


  • The island of Odongdo, famous for camellia. It's just a short 10-minute drive from the city centre, so there's really no excuse for missing out. You can walk along the seawall or take the camellia train from the entrance to the island. Odongdo has a dense forest of evergreens such as camellia trees and bamboo. Camellias begin blooming in October and are in full bloom by April, and their beauty is what makes Odongdo so famous and special. A trail encircling the island offers a chance to slowly take in a natural beauty. You can also climb to the lighthouse observation deck and take in a panoramic view of the archipelago.
  • Dolsan Park and Cable Car: The park is situated at the entrance to Dolsan Island off the coast of Yeosu. The best views of the city can be had at night when Dolsan Bridge and Yeosu Port are fully lit. Dolsan Park is also home to a marine cable car that will take you over the sea to Jasan Park. It takes about 15 minutes to cross, you can sit back and see views of the surrounding sea, Yeosu, Janggundo, Geobukseon Bridge and Hamel Lighthouse.
  • Hyangilam is a temple situated on a steep cliff on Mt. Geumo at the southern end of Dolsan Island. The name means "facing (hyang) the sun (il)", and as it suggests, the temple is a great spot for viewing the sunrise. To climb to the temple, you have to pass through narrow gaps in the rocks. There are seven such gaps in total, and it is said that passing through all gaps will grant you a wish. The front of the inner sanctuary is a famous spot for sunrise viewing and gets rather crowded on New Year's morning. You can get there by bus  number 113 or 116. 
  • Yeosu Ocean Railbike: Along the rocky coast of Yeosu there is a 3.5 km long open track that passes through open beachfronts and a tunnel portion. Riding the Yeosu Ocean Railbike is an incredibly exciting way to see the cliffs and islands jutting out of Yeosu’s sea. It is also a quite safe and comfortable ride. If you do not want to tire your legs by hiking around Yeosu’s coast, this is the best alternative for you. To get there you can take bus 6 or 7.
