The name ‘Daewangam’ means a “great king’s rock”.

Daewangam Park, Ulsan Reviews

  • 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.

  • Captivating clean blue sea splashing on the rising rocks creating serene sounds great placevto unwind a pleasant walk with family in the air soaked in pine tree sift aroma and fresh sea breeze love to be here

  • Daewangam Park is perfect for a day trip. The park is beautiful, with full views of Ulsan and the Pacific Ocean. It has several trails which can be navigated with little effort. Bring your kids, friends and camera because this site has something for everyone.
