No better cure for hot summer days than rejuvenating day at the beach. So if the heat is what ails you, plan a stay at the El Dorado Resort located in the designed Slow City of Jeungdo.
Drink in the summer sun while flitting over the ocean waves on a pair of speedy jet skis, or take a ride with the whole family on a big yellow banana boat. If you’d prefer something a little more leisurely, take a delightful yacht cruise to see a few of the 827 islands of Sinan County.
After playing in the surf all day, return to your beachfront room and soak in the seawater sauna, or sign yourself up at the spa for one of the many available seawater treatments.
For those who aren’t big fans of playing in the sand, hit a round of golf at El Dorado’s golf course or swim some laps at the resort’s beautiful outdoor swimming pool.
W287,000 – W860,000. Discounts available for members.
Ocean Spa Land in the resort’s “Golden Bay” facility center offers a seawater sauna, outdoor baths, and Korean jimjjilbang.
4km-long Ujeon Beach, jet skis, banana boats, swimming pool, El Dorado Yacht Club boating, Muan Country Club golf, Hampyeong Dynasty Country Club golf (located offsite)

Island-hopping via yacht; Sinan salt fields
Sinan is known for its salt harvesting. Food made with clean, natural ocean salt is a totally different experience—to see for yourself, check out one of the local Salt Restaurants. Unlike what the name might imply, the food is not that salty.
