Dragon Head Rock - Review

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

  • Interesting, but it's one of the few formations in Jeju where I think pictures can do it justice. Swing by if you're passing during the daylight. Great place for a stroll, but not a destination outright. However, nearby are some great cafes and bars.

  • Beautiful rocks. There were free dive ladies. Can try out the fresh sea urchins.

  • It's okay. After seeing other parts of Jeju and spending the day in Udo before seeing this it was underwhelming within the context of the whole island. Still cool and a jumping off point and the volcanic rocks are great.

  • Early morning, not soo crowded, plus a good weather... Soo we have a wonderful views over there

  • Rock kinda looks like a dragon. Around the corner is a seafood restaurant on the rocks. Kinda unique
