Mallipo beach – beautiful light sand and clear water in Taean-gun
It looks like the summer is back again, so why don’t head to the beach before winter sets in…
Last time, we discovered the beautiful landscape of Taean-gun and especially Mallipo beach – the best known and also said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the area.
On the way, we’ve been amazed by the splendid sceneries of green rice paddies surrounded by the mountains.
Mallipo beach is a wide and large strip of sand located at the end of the route #32. If you are lucky enough to arrive during the high tide and if the weather is fine, the clarity of the water and its blue color is just impressive.
You can spend a beautiful day on the beach. Don’t worry about the food – there are many convenience stores, beach supplies stores, coffee shops and restaurants along the beach.
As we came from Seoul for one-day trip, we didn’t have time to compare with other beaches, but we’ll definitely be back soon. Taean-gun has actually much more things and places to explore – Anmyeondo natural forest, Sindu Dune, Gaui Island, Kkotji beach, Cheolipo Arboretum and many others.
