In Yeosu, there is a dinosaur-themed amusement park that children love. It is also popular with adults as they can relax while children play. We also recommend an aquarium where you can take photos using AR, and a complex resort that offers a fantastic experience with the stunning scenery. Experience Yeosu at its best at Geomundo or Bangjukpo Beach. Visiting Yeosu with the whole family?

    Yeosu Art Land

    • Group

    Yeosu Art Land, where wonderful sculptures welcome you from the entrance, catches the eyes of children with 3D trick art and a sculpture park. You can enjoy the sea at Yeosu from dizzying height at Skywalk, where you wear safety gear and walk in the air with the aid of a zipline. The trapeze that you can ride while looking at the sea and the observatory that looks like it's perched on a human hand are especially popular with children, so you'll have to wait in line. But just seeing the children happy will make you happy.

    You will arrive at Geomundo Island in about 2 hours by boat, which operates twice a day from Yeosu. Built based on the legend of a mermaid who saves fishermen from typhoons, Geomundo's Mermaid Marine Park is refreshing with blue water and green grass. The Noksan Lighthouse, visible from here, is also an unmanned lighthouse and serves as a guide to surrounding islands. Geomundo Island, designated as part of the Dadohae Marine Park, has so many charms that it is impossible to see them all in one day.

    Although Bangjukpo Beach is not large, the water depth is shallow, so you can enjoy playing in the water with your children with confidence. There are lifeguards on duty, the showers are great and the water is clear. There is a dense pine forest behind the beach, so you can cool off by sitting on a mat under the shade on a hot summer day. Yeosu Gaetgagil, which starts from Bangjukpo Beach, is a promenade where you can walk through a pine forest while looking at the sea and feeling a sense of healing.

    Yeosu Marine Cable Car

    The Yeosu Marine Cable Car is a convenient means of transportation to Odongdo Island and Dolsan Park, but it is special because you can see the beautiful view of the sea at night. Each stop of the Yeosu Marine Cable Car has a beautiful night view, so the waiting time tends to increase in the evening. You can also enjoy the beautiful night view from the 3rd floor of the cable car boarding building in Dolsan Park, so consider a visit even if you do not take the cable car.

    Yeosu EXPO Ocean Park

    When you get off at Yeosu Expo Station, you can see the entrance to the Yeosu World Expo right across from it, which is still being used as a park. The Big O, installed over the night sea in Yeosu, famous for its beauty, presents a colourful fountain show every evening from April to November. However, some facilities on the site of the marine park, including the Big O and the Sky Tower, charge a fee, so it is better to check in advance.
