Jeongbang Falls is one of the Jejudo Island’s top 3 falls, along with Cheonjiyeon Falls and Cheonjeyeon Falls. It is the only fall in Korea where water falls directly into the sea. The fall is 23m high and the two streams of waterfall that fall down the black cliff create a thrilling sound and a wonderful view. Moreover, the steep cliffs and old pine trees around the fall create a picturesque view, and this view was chosen as one of Ten Scenic Sights of Yeongju with the name of “Jeongbanghapok.” It is said that the words ‘Seobulgwacha’ are engraved on the cliffs of Jeongbang Falls.
According to legends, a man named Seobul came to the island in search of an elixir plant on the orders of China’s Qin Shu Huangdi a long time ago. Unable to find the elixir plant, he headed west to return to China, and became captivated by the site of Jeongbang Falls, leading to him writing “Seobulgwacha’ on the cliff. However, these words have yet to be found in real life. It takes approximately 5 minutes to go down the stairs leading from the parking lot to the fall.
