MAN­JANG CAVES

A Unesco World Her­itage Site, Man­jang Caves (ad­mis­sion: 2,000 won) is the largest vol­canic lava tun­nel in Jeju Is­land. Even if you’re not into ge­ol­ogy, it’s worth vis­it­ing to see how lava once flowed here, leav­ing spec­tac­u­lar rock for­ma­tions and pat­terns on the walls of the pas­sage. At the end, you’re greeted by the world’s tallest lava col­umn – 7.6m tall. Tem­per­a­tures in­side the tun­nel can drop to a chilly 11 deg C so bring a jacket.

JU­SANG­JE­OLLI CLIFF

Formed when Mount Hal­lasan – a dor­mant vol­cano that’s also the tallest moun­tain in South Korea – erupted, the Ju­sang­je­olli Cliff (ad­mis­sion: 2,000 won) is made up of ma­jes­tic, cube-shaped lava rock for­ma­tions. From ob­ser­va­tion decks over­look­ing the ocean, you’ll get a stun­ning view of the crash­ing waves at high tide.
