Solseom Island – A Peaceful Place in Goseong

Address: 198, Songcheon-ri, Hail-myeon, Goseong-gun, Gyeongnam

We discovered Solseom Island this spring, and actually missed many of the flowers. But we enjoyed a nice walk around the island and rocky shore.

We followed the path after parking.

The island is like a small hill. A set of stairs took us up, where we could loop around the whole island. Solseom Island is not large, so we could easily walk around it in a fairly short amount of time.

Just around the corner were some stairs leading down to the shore, so we had a look.

Noah had to check out the rocky terrain.

He did surprisingly well on the uneven rocky terrain.

But we soon moved him to the sandy beach area. We even saw a few people with tents on the beach. It seems like such a peaceful place to chill out for a while.

We got back onto the boardwalk around Solseom Island.

There are plenty of benches and a few clearings to take a rest in the shade. We let Noah walk around more, and we all shared some fruit.

Noah found some smaller, narrow paths leading further inland.

I believe these were the bushes which had been full of colorful flowers some days or weeks earlier.

We noticed what appeared to be a bunch of fishing nets.

We followed the path around the most of island and before long finished the loop.

All in all, it is a nice outing without crowds of people, and not too strenuous to loop around. We enjoyed it!
