Jeju Island, South Korea Cruise Port

Jeju Island, also known as Jejudo or Jeju-do, is the largest island found off the coast of the Korean Peninsula, and is also a volcanic island. The island is also sometimes referred to as the “Island of the Gods”, and is the main island of Jeju Province. The island lies to the Southwest of South Jeolla Province in the Korea Strait. The island has a temperate climate with temperatures that rarely fall to levels below the freezing point. Jejudo covers an approximate area of 1,848 square kilometers and holds an estimated population of around 583,284 people. The volcanic island and lava tubes in the region boast of being declared a World Heritage Site. Featured below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors can enjoy after cruising to Jeju Island, South Korea:
 
  • Adventurers and nature lovers should try hiking around or up to South Korea's highest peak that stands at an altitude of around 1,950 meters. The dormant volcano is densely wooded and is the only habitat in the world for Korean firs. The volcano is beautiful all year round.
     
  • Visitors interested in the geology of the region should pay a visit to Manjanggul. This location is the main access point to the longest system of lava-tube caves in the world. The caves offer spectacular views of lava features in the tubes.
     
  • Another natural landmark that visitors should go visit is the Seongsan Ilchul-bong. This feature is a 182 meter-high tuff volcano and the forested crater is shaped like a giant punchbowl. Catching sunrise views here is a popular activity in the region since it is one of Jejudo's impressive sights.
     
  • A fun family activity would be to visit the Gimnyeong Maze Park. The maze is a popular site for visitors and is usually fun for both adults and children. The maze was created by an American who used 2,232 Leyland cypress trees to make the maze.
