About Dragon Head Rock, Jeju-si

To look at this rock and say it was formed by wind and wave over eons of time would be truthful. But that's not nearly as exciting as saying seeing the shape of the dragon in it its outline, and knowing the legends that speak of its creation. So many tourists have come to see it now, that there are cafes and bars and restaurants all around, making what amounts to a small hamlet. Local women can be seen fishing around the area. Not too far away is a picturesque beach. Don't get your hopes too high. Despite the strong winds and terrific views of the ocean and the coastal road, the actual rock is quite ordinary. To get the correct view of the rock, don't see it from the viewing platform near the road; rather, follow the walking trail and steps for three minutes to get to the other side of the rock, from where the profile most resembles a dragon.

Dragon Head Rock, Jeju-si Reviews

  • Good place to visit. Try fresh seafood right by the scenery. Be prepare for the high wind.

  • It really is nothing but rock. Can visit for a quick stop and see the dragon shaped rock. Maybe I'm lacking in imagination, i don't see much dragon in it. Its really close to airport.

  • Beautiful place, awesome! We enjoy the time in this place. How great is our God who made it.

  • One big irregular rock named as "dragons head". Not worth changing your travel plans, but not bad for a quick visit. Has great tangerine stalls.

  • We saw the place at the night time, it's only rock and it looks like Dragon. We ate squid satay. So windy. And the weather is cold.
