Sunrise Peak

At least the Koreans think so.

For everyone else, it is a romantic getaway worth considering. It is not just because there is a lot of history to the island. There is just about something for every type of honeymooner.


These are quaint, inexpensive little hotels that dot the landscape. They are not large like the better 4 and 5-star hotels. They are usually family owned motels, each with their own little perks.

Some offer breakfast, others allow pets and some even have little kitchens. You do not have to go out to eat. You can make your own food and keep the people to just the two of you.

These little pensions are great for every honeymooner, but they are also perfect for those who do not like a crowd or a lot of outside activity during their special time together. The price tag for these little motels is not that large.

Mt. Halla, Sangumburi Crater & the Sunrise Peak

These are the three main mountains on Jeju-do. The first is the tallest of the three and it has all sorts of hiking adventures to keep the hiking loving honeymooners busy for days. If you go in the winter time, be careful. It does snow on this mountain.

If hiking up a mountain is not fun, then Sangburi Crater may be your alternative honeymoon activity. The Crater is a dormant volcano. You can hike around the rim or down into the crater itself. It doesn’t take a lot of time and the trails are clearly marked. There are also enough rest stops to take in the beautiful view.

Sunrise Peak is a hiking favorite. Just about everyone who lands on Jeju-do takes a walk up the mountain. Reportedly the first spot to see the sun in the morning, hence the name, this rock has steep trails and lots of stairs. You will be too tired for any other activity after a hike up this peak.

Chocolate Museum, Teddy Bear Museum & O’Sulloc’s

One way to get your new wife into the mood is to appeal to her sensitive side. A side trip to the chocolate museum is one way to make your appeal. The exterior is built from lava rocks, but the interior is lavishly decorated. There are glass windows allowing visitors to see how the chocolate is made.

You can purchase freshly made chocolate and other gifts before you leave.

Show her your cuddly side and surprise her with a trip to the teddy bear museum. Looking at all those cute and adorable teddy bears will put even the coldest heart into a romantic mood.

If those two options do not do the trick, then bring her to O’Sulloc’s Tea plantation. Here you will find row upon row of tea plants and great opportunities for romantic photos. The showroom, where you can taste test the different varieties of Korea’s finest teas, is exquisitely designed.

The atmosphere is perfect for romantic couples to spend a few hours tasting teas and seeing the Korean countryside.

Water Activities & Yeomiji Botanical Gardens

We simply cannot name all of the different water activities advertised on Jeju-do. There are boat tours, swimming, and other fun things to do with water. For those honeymooners who want a more active time together, then these water options will fill that need.

The submarine tour opens up the world under the sea and provide wonderful memories to take home. The beaches are wonderful for swimming or for just taking it easy and lying in the sun.

Or if you like to stay on dry land and keep the time together relaxed, you can visit the Yeomiji Botanical Gardens. This is located near O’Sulloc’s and may be combined with that excursion. But what a nice way to spend part of the day. Just walking hand in hand through the different trees and plants with your new spouse.

There is something to be said about spending a lot of quiet time together on a honeymoon.

Some Final Words

You may not have thought about Jeju-do as a great honeymoon escape, but the island is full of surprises. We listed only a few things that can be done during the honeymoon break.

Over by Seogwipo, are two water falls. The Cheonjiyeon and the Jeongbang falls offer great romantic alternatives to the other activities on the island.

You may think that Jeju-do is a little too far to go, especially when Hawaii is on the way. But Jeju-do offers a unique attitude that just makes it a perfect place to start your marriage.

The Koreans on the island are extra-friendly. They know how to treat their temporary guests. Don’t let the language stop you from going. There are enough English speakers and English signs, so you will not get lost.

      This sounds like a great location. If you have any photos, uploading them via the hub capsules would further enhance your article.
