Yes, rainy day at the resort island can be annoying. On the bright side, one could enjoy watching it, in a cozy street cafe. Depending on how much it rains, you could even go outside and feel the rain itself with your whole body. That is what I did today as there were only raindrops, not showers. I went to the Samyang Black Sand Beach(삼양검은모래해변, SBSB) famous where locals visit during the summer season. Despite crystal-clear mineral water(water purification center is located next to the beach) and therapeutic effects of volcanic sand, SBSB is one of less explored beaches of Jeju. On a rainy day, only a handful of tourists and locals could be seen at the beach, which made the beach more attractive than usual. I took the Bus No.100 myself to get here, and soon arrived at Samhwa Housing Development District.
Just before arriving at the beach, I found the prehistoric site where Jeju natives lived. Unfortunately, museum was closed by 6, I could only take a photo from the outside.
And I also passed by the Samyang Seawater Public Bath where I used to go when young, with parents.
from there to the end of the Samyang Black Sand Beach, I took a few photos of SBSB.
The water was pure, just like I heard. The beach was quiet as expected, since it rained and the opening season began at the end of June.
Just outside the beach next to the water purification plant, walls were painted with cartoon-like pictures which showed the lives of the natives in the past.
Samyang Black Sand Beach was pleasantly quiet and more local. One bad thing about that fact was, there weren’t any good cafes near the beach where one could drink coffee and take some rest. Except that, going to a beach near Jeju city just before visiting beaches already crowded with tourists would give the tourists the chance to spend some quiet, relaxed time! So enjoy yourself here at SBSB(삼양검은모래해변) when you visit Jeju Island!
