Yongduam Rock

As a symbol of Jeju, this rock is said to be in the shape of a dragon’s head and always crowed with tourists. Legend claims that once an emissary of the Dragon King ordered a search for the elixir of life on Mt. Halla but was struck by an arrow released by the angry mountain spirit and fell into the sea.

Then the dragon king turned into stone with its body submerged into water but its head reared to the heaven. It is also known to be the best evening driving course.
