Yeosu is a lively city located in the province of Jeollanam. Which has become a popular tourist destination in the present times. Not only because of its history, but also due to the countless entertainment you can find in this place.

Even if there are many things to do, we will introduce for now three places where you can have a bit of fun!

Jongpo Marine Park (여수밤바다)

Nothing better than having a peaceful stroll along the sea!

This place got to be the most famous among the list. Because when night comes, it starts getting full of people. But do not worry, you will not feel suffocated. Since the path is long and you will rarely find yourself in a crowd.

The reason to why a lot of people come to stroll, is of course because of the night sea. Which gets colored by the reflection of the vibrant lights. From both bridges and the path.

Plus there are a lot of resting areas. Such as benches and even tables! So you can sit there and have your dinner while having a nice view before your eyes.

In addition, this street is near to the famous Hamel Lighthouse (하멜등대). Which is a must-visit place in Yeosu.

We suggest you to start your stroll from there. Because in this area there are a lot of restaurants and street food vendors! So as you can imagine, it gets lively at night. A really good atmosphere.

Since it is a beautiful beach trail. Where you can enjoy the sea of Yeosu while vibing at the rhythm of the waves. And it consists of 740 m.
