It was summer in South Korea so I went to Jeju Island as they say it is the Hawaii of South Korea. I have not been to Hawaii to make a direct comparison but where the sun is, is where I will be. Hamdeok Beach is popular among families wanting to enjoy water activities including parasailing and jet skiing. One can have coffee at any of the cafes where some offer splendid view of the horizon. Best to go during summer where the skies are blue and the sun shines bright. Sunblock and aviators are a must. It was so bright it was uncomfortable to have a naked eye as light bounces off the white sand.
