Observation Platform Yeongrak-ri Breakwater—Sindo Port [영락리 방파제—신도포구]

Lee Jun-ho (Kang Tae-oh) accompanies Woo Young-woo (Park Eun-bin) for dolphin watching at this spot when on a work trip on Jeju Island in episode 13 of Extraordinary Attorney Woo (이상한 변호사 우영우) (ENA/Netflix, 2022) but without chance. In episode 14, both come back here to give it another try and this is when [Spoiler] Young-woo tells Lee Jun-ho that she wants to break up with him and then walks away along the dyke.

Noeul Coastal Road [노을 해안로], which translates to Sunset Coastal Road, is a 12-kilometer section of Jeju’s coastal road. It carries the name ‘sunset’ because “it has the most beautiful sunset scenery among Jeju coastal roads,” according to the Visit Jeju website.

The Northern part of this section, also named Sindo Port Coastal Road [신도포구 해안도로] —between Yeongrak-ri Breakwater [영락리 방파제] and Sindo Port [신도포구]— in the village of Sindo [Sindo-ri7신도리] in Seogwipo’s Daejeong Township [Daejeong-eup/대정읍] is known to be one of the best spots to watch bottlenose dolphins.

The many fish farms in this region, the rich marine life with an abundance of fish and octopuses and also the anglers with their bait make this part of Jeju’s coast very attractive for dolphins. According to this blog, the best time and highest probability to see dolphins is from 10 to 12am and at 2pm during daytime.

This coastal road lies parallel to the usually not much frequented 17.1 km long Jeju Olle Course 12 [제주올레 12코스] (Mureung Farm to Yongsu Port), noted for its “spectacular Fall scenery.”
