Yangyang is home to many stunning beaches, but it is Jukdo Beach that makes it one of the best surfing spots in Korea. Hailed by The Korea Herald as a โ€œmecca for surfersโ€, Jukdo is a 2-km beach that features cool waters that arenโ€™t too deep, which makes it suitable for casual and beginner surfers. The big waves actually come during winter, so if youโ€™ve been surfing for a while and donโ€™t mind the cold, you should definitely come! (Yes, winter surfing in Korea is possible and actually quite exciting.) Visiting Yangyang during the hot months of summer is also not half-bad โ€” I mean, itโ€™s the peak season! โ€” though expect the waves to be milder.

A few more things that I love about Jukdo Beach in Yangyang is that it has a surf village filled with cozy dining spots and bars. The community here is also warm and friendly, so even if youโ€™re not into surfing at all, you can just come down and meet new people.

The most recommended surfing school in Yangyang is Mango Surf (๋ง๊ณ ์„œํ”„). Itโ€™s located in Jukdo Beach and is open all year round. They offer individual and group lessons, equipment rental, unlimited surfing experience, and even a 2D1N surf package where you can stay in their guesthouse! Beginners can book the Introductory class, while those with some background can join the Standard (or Level-up) lesson. If you come on a Saturday, you can also join their fun Korean BBQ party (pork belly and soju, anyone?) thatโ€™s exclusive for Mango Surf customers!
