Wahyeon Beach - 와현해수욕장
Wahyeon Beach



While it might not be widely known, Wahyeon Beach is my number one pick! If you crave a quiet beach retreat, far from the hustle and bustle, this is your best choice. This beach is literally tucked away with not much noise and crowds. Within a two-minute stroll from the beach, you'll find plenty of cozy pensions with all the comforts you need. This beach is perfect for families and groups of friends. There are also lots of beach and water activities that you can do. There are only a few cafes, convenience stores, and restaurants, but it's totally worth it! Last summer, I spent a weekend gataway here, and I loved going for swims in the early morning before starting the day with not so many people around and super clean water! Plus, with the departing dock for Oedo Botania nearby, it's very convenient.

In the evening, the atmosphere is lovely and quiet, with people strolling on the beach, and small fireworks!

GUJORA BEACH - 구조라해수욕장

Gujora Beach is really close to Wahyeon Beach, only 1-2 km away. On the second morning, I decided to check it out for a swim, but when I got there, I found myself missing the cozy vibe in Wahyeon beach. Gujora is a big beach, with plenty of parking for cars and places to stay nearby, but it felt there wasn't much else around. However, it offers space for beach activities and relaxation.

Hakdong Mongdol Beach is perfect if you're looking for rocky shores. This beach is also the most famous beach in Geoje. Instead of sand, Hakdong is covered in small pebbles, so be careful when you step on them! While swimming might not be the main thing to do here, there are plenty of restaurants nearby where you can grab a bite to eat, enjoy the unique rocky scenery, relax and walk near the beach. It's a great spot to enjoy a different beach landscape!

--- When booking your stay, it's essential to plan ahead as last-minute availability is scarce. I went to Geoje in early August and everything was almost fully booked 2 weeks before!
