A weekend mystery tour lead us to a small coastal town about 40kms North of Sokcho on Korea's East Coast.
Desperate to do some exploring and swimming, we found a cheap hotel by the water, and headed off.
We discovered the most beautiful pristine bay, near the village of Goseong, with calm clear water filled with all kinds of sea plants and animals.
Being early May, the weather was slightly chilly, but not cold enough to stop the kids from swimming. We spent a lovely relaxing weekend exploring the area, and the best part - without all the tourists.
A starfish and this amazing little blue creature. I thought it must have been a plastic toy, but it was real.
This seaweed was like green fishing line - amazing stuff.
The kids named this place the "Sea Garden". It was like a miniature tidal river system, with creeks, tributaries and all kinds of creatures and plants.
Crystal clear water
From high on a large rock, the sunset was spectacular.
