Planned a one day trip last weekend to Gangneung along the East Sea coz we just simply miss the beach. This can’t be compared with the beaches back home in the Philippines but East Sea is already one of the best we could get here in Korea for swimming.
The sand is not that soft and fine. The seabed gets abruptly deep even in just a 2-m distance from the shore. Good thing they have a very good safety practice here. As you can see there are a lot of inflatable tubes everywhere. Lifeguards keeping an eye to anybody reaching the borderline. Majority of Koreans don’t know how to swim, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. Thankful that I was born in a country where beaches or pools are our second playground, hence the swimming skills.😁
We had fun though. Hoping for a next beach getaway.
