Jeju Island, the so-called Hawaii of Korea, attracts visitors from all over the world with its volcanic beauty. Only some of these visitors, though, make it to the tiny neighboring island of Udo, accessible via ferry from Jeju.
Here, travelers rent bikes or scooters to explore the entire island, which measures just 2.4 square miles. Stopping to eat peanut butter ice cream is a must, as is laying out a towel on a quiet beach. There are many to choose from that are perfect for swimming and enjoying clear water, but the most secluded and unique is Geommeolle.
Protected by dramatic cliffs, you’ll find black sand, a cave and, if you’re lucky, haenyeo, the famous Jeju women divers.
