Daewangam Park - Review

Originally named as Ulki Park, Daewangam park is located on the east coast of Ulsan, along Daewangam rock. Previously, it happens to be the ‘vestige’ of Japanese colonialism. Later in October,2004, the island was renamed as Daewangam. Reaching to this park is quite easily as it is just walking distance away from Ilsan beach. The name ‘Daewangam’ means a “great king’s rock”. The historical fact behind this name says a queen of the ancient country Shilla was buried under Daewangam while praying for the protection of the country. It is said she eventually turned into a dragon, protecting the country. This historical fact is often used as education information for children. Beside this, the location of this park also plays a major role in attracting tourists from all over the world. While reaching to this park, you need to trek for 1 km, passing through the forest of pine trees, cherry trees, magnolias, camellias, apricots and forsythia. This journey is quite adventurous. Once you reach the park, you will fall in love with the cooling sight of East Sea that you get from the coast of this park. Don’t forget to see the Ulgi lighthouse that appears in the distant like a guiding light in the east area.

Daewangam Park, Ulsan Reviews

  • Beautiful view on the sea! I absolutely love it here. 경치 너무 예뻤다!!

  • Small stretch of coastline with impressive history and stunning sea views. The park is beautiful with lots of well marked paths and tree cover leading down to a small coastal path that has an outcropping of rocks connected by a bridges. There is a local legend of a king who was buried here and who now prevents seaweed growing on the rocks as he defends his country. The views and photo opportunities are numerous and depending on the time of day a large number of ships on the horizon. Well worth a visit.

  • Great scenery, but really windy on the way I went. Lots of cafes, a few restaurants, plenty of restrooms. Great for families with kids. Plan on spending at least an hour or two here. You have to walk from the parking to the ocean, and want to have time to enjoy the scenery.

  • Ulsan is nice, but this place is just beautiful. An amazing walk, a romantic place, beautiful nature, everything is beautiful.

  • Real nice. Bring your family. Kids world!!
