Samsenghyeol shrine 

Samseonghyeol is located in the pine forest between Kal Hotel and Jeju Folklore & Natural History Museum.

 

The word “Samseonghyeol” means “three clans' holes”, referring to the three triangle shaped holes in the middle of the forest. Each hole is separated from the other holes by a few meters. 

Legend says that Samseonghyeol is the place where three demigods, the founding fathers of Tamna (the former name of Jeju), first appeared. They lived by hunting and gathering for a while and got married to three princesses from Byeokrangguk who came to shore in a wooden box. The three princesses brought with them a calf, pony, and five different seeds that eventually helped to establish agriculture in Jeju. 

Curiously, the three holes are not percolated by rain or snow. The ancient trees surrounding the holes look as if they are bowing to them, often surprising visitors.

Yongduam Rocky beach

Yongduam is located o the north of Jeju City. Yongduam was created by strong winds and waves over thousands of years. However, there are plenty of other stories of how it came to be. You can see Haeneo women divers working on catching seafood from this Yongduam.

 

One legend has it that a dragon stealing precious jade from Mt. Halla was shot down by an arrow from the mountain deity. When he fell down on Yongduam, his body immediately sank into the ocean and his head rapidly froze looking at the sky.

Another legend is that a white horse, who dreamed of being a dragon and ascending to the sky, came to be caught by a soldier and froze into the rock. 

There are various cafes, bars and restaurants near the rock. The coastal road between Aewol-eup and Yongduam is a popular spot for couples.
