The name Yeosu means "beautiful (yeo) waters (su)". As the name suggests, there’s an abundance of beautiful ocean views in Yeosu. The clean waters and countless uninhabited islands of the southern sea mean that Yeosu is full of great spots across land and water. Yeosu is renowned nationally for having some of the most picturesque places for driving, walking, trekking and swimming, as well as for appreciating the sunrise and night-time panoramas. Just as the beauty of this city was famously captured in the song "Yeosu Night Sea", the nightscapes of Yeosu leave you with memories to be cherished for years and years. Yeosu, full of not only things to see but also eat, is a must-stop destination no matter the season.

    The island of Odongdo, famous for camellia, is often said to be one of the first destinations travellers must visit in Yeosu. It's just a short 10-minute drive from the city centre, so there's really no excuse for missing out. You can walk along the seawall or take the camellia train from the entrance to the island. Odongdo has a dense forest of evergreens such as camellia trees and bamboo. Camellias begin blooming in October and are in full bloom by April, and their beauty is what makes Odongdo so famous and special. A trail encircling the island offers a chance to slowly take in a natural beauty. You can also climb to the lighthouse observation deck and take in a panoramic view of the archipelago.

    Hyangilam is a temple situated on a steep cliff on Mt. Geumo at the southern end of Dolsan Island. The name means "facing (hyang) the sun (il)", and as it suggests, the temple is a great spot for viewing the sunrise. It was founded by the famous Silla-era Buddhist Wonhyo and is one of four major destinations in Korea for bodhisattva prayers. To climb to the temple, you have to pass through narrow gaps in the rocks. There are seven such gaps in total, and it is said that passing through all gaps will grant you a wish. The front of the inner sanctuary is a famous spot for sunrise viewing and gets rather crowded on New Year's morning. Behind Hyangilam is Mt. Geumo, where a panoramic view of the southern sea awaits you.

    Yeongchwisan must not be missed if you happen to be travelling to Yeosu in April when azaleas are in bloom. The mountain, spanning Samil-dong and Sangam-dong, is about 510 metres above sea level, so you can easily hike there with your family. It's one of the top three destinations in Korea for azaleas, and it happens to be where the flowers bloom the earliest. In early April, you'll be treated to a spectacular view of azaleas that turn the mountain bright red from the middle up to the summit. If you make it to the summit, you can overlook the archipelago, Gwangyang Bay and Yeocheon Industrial Complex. If this sounds up your alley, be sure to visit in April when the Azalea Festival is held.
