Yongduam is located just north of Jeju City. It was created by strong winds and waves over thousands of years. There are plenty of other stories of how it came to be. One legend claims that a dragon stealing precious jade from Mt. Halla was shot down by an arrow from the mountain deity. When the dragon fell down on Yongduam, his body immediately sank into the ocean and his head rapidly froze looking at the sky.
Right next to this landmark you can eat the freshest seafood in South Korea. Jeju Island is famous for women divers who collect
In Jeju Island, there is a community of women, some aged in their 80s, which goes diving 10m under the sea to gather shellfish, such as abalone or sea urchins for a living without the help of oxygen masks. These women are called Haenyo (woman diver), and sell their catch at some of the famous tourists spots such as this one.
