*Jeongbang Waterfalls : It is about 23m high and 8m wide, and the small pond that the water falls into is 5m deep. Jeongbang Waterfalls is the only place on jeju where the water falls straight to the ocean. It has been selected as one of the 10 wonders of Jeju and called “Jeongbang Hapok”. On both sides of the waterfall are vertical cliffs and old pine trees.
*Oedolgae Rock : It is a rock standing out in the sea and was named for its loneliness. There are various legends about the 20-meter-high rock, for its shape changes according to the direction from which one sees it. It is also called Grandmother Rock ( Halmangbawi ) as one legend has it that an old woman waited for her husband to return from a fishing trip and, when he did not come back due to a storm, she became a rock. There is a rock right under Oedolgae that looks as if it is floating and it is said that her husband also turned to a rock when the grandmother became a stone pillar. In reality, the rock island was formed when a volcano erupted 1.5 million years ago.
*Jusangjeolli Cliff : The formation looks like a piece of art that has been sculpted delicately with a sharp tool. Jusangjeollidae usually refers to vertical pillar shaped rocks in a rectangular or hexagonal shape and is often composed of basaltic lava. Such a formation is the result of a sudden contraction when think molten lava flows from an active volcanic crater and cools rapidly. This site is full a wonder of nature, where hexagonal rock pillars stand on top of each other like giant stairs. This is designaged as Natural Monument No.433.
*Cheonjeyeon Waterfalls : This is the largest waterfalls of the three major waterfalls on Jeju island, the other two of which are Cheonjiyeon Waterfalls & Jeongbang Waterfalls. Cheonjeyeon means “the pond of God” from a legend that Taoist fairies who worshiped the Great Jade Emperor descended here to bathe. The water here is known for its purity and springs from a spot between the precipice of the cliffs and the clay layers. From the ceiling of the cave of the first cascade falls water that is believed to cure diseases when splash over one’s body, and is also used for drinking.
