Spring Starts Yellow on Jejudo Island

Spring Starts Yellow on Jejudo Island

Each year, wave after wave of canola flowers herald the arrival of spring. The island is covered with these refreshingly colored carpets of yellow blossoms from mid-March to early May. The sea of flowers creates scenic landscapes against the backdrop of the clear sky and the blue sea. Here are some of the spots most famous for canola flower blossoms in Jeju.

Seongsanpo Canola Flower Farm:
First and Foremost Destination for Canola Sightseeing

This canola farm extends along Gwangchigi Beach on the way to Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone. The farm, marked with low-rise stone fences, features a bright yellow field of canola flowers on both sides of the road. While the sight of these blossoms is refreshing, you should enter the field and walk along the path amid the flower blossoms to get the best view. You can also take memorable selfies here against the backdrop of both the canola field and Seongsan Ilchulbong Tuff Cone. The best time to take photos is early in the morning when there are few visitors around, and the pure sunlight provides a beautiful effect for even the most amateur photographer. Canola fields are usually private properties that charge admission fees, averaging about KRW 1,000 per adult.

- Address: Canola Flower Farm, Goseong-ri, Seongsan-eup, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do

Noksan-ro Canola Flower Path: One of the Most Scenic Trails in Korea

Noksan-ro is the name of the road that extends for some 10 kilometers between Jungseok Aviation Pavilion and Gasiri Junction. Named one of “the 100 most beautiful roads” in Korea, Noksan-ro provides a spectacular driving course. In spring, carpets of bright yellow canola blossoms cover both sides of the road. Pale pink cherry blossoms are also seen on top of the canola flower fields in April, making this location an iconic spot for welcoming spring in Jeju. The Jeju Flower Festival takes place nearby every April that offers not only a great opportunity for photography, but also a variety of activities, including a coach ride through the canola fields, hand-dyeing, photography exhibitions, concerts, and a walkathon along Jjolbun Gapmajang Road.

- Address (festival venue): San 41, Gasi-ri, Pyoseon-myeon, Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do

Seopjikoji Canola Field: A Beloved Background of Korean Dramas and Movies

Cape Seopjikoji draws visitors in spring by offering a panoramic view of the coastal landscape of Jeju mixed with carpets of canola blossoms. The word koji means “cape” in the Jeju dialect. The best way to enjoy this scenic destination in spring is to climb the hill at the tip of the cape and walk along the canola field to enjoy the magnificent coastal landscape. The canola flowers here boast an especially vivid and bright color against the backdrop of sunlight and the blue sea. The area also features Phoenix Island Glass House and Yumin Gallery, both designed by the world-renowned architect Tadao Ando and is, therefore, a perfect spot for art-inspired spring picnics. This place has also been a popular filming location for various Korean dramas and movies.
