2. Amnam Park
Amnam Park is covered with a dense pine forest set against a backdrop of the sea with small boats floating on the surface. The park offers a great view of the coastline, located in San 193, Amnam-dong around Jinjeongsan Mountain. When completely surrounded by its thick forest, visitors can feel refreshed by walking through the lush green foliage as they gaze out at the open sea or view the cliffs formed of diversely-shaped boulders.
Coastal Walk is a 1 meter-wide, 800 meter-long track that connects Songdo Beach and Amnam Park, a walking distance of about 20 minutes. It offers a view of Songdo’s coastline dotted with boats and sedimentary rock cliffs that have been formed over a hundred million years ago.
3. Songdo Beach
Songdo Beach is Korea’s first beach in the modern sense. Also known as the Naples of Asia, the beach’s popularity began to soar during the 60s and 80s. The beautiful coastline is frequented by tourists all year round. Songdo Beach has recently been refurbished as a sea-side park. Offshore breakwaters and underwater breakwaters protect the beach from yearly typhoons and to prevent loss of beach sand.
