you won't see the tomb from the shore, if you are lucky you may see some "ama" (Haenyeo) diving there. To reach the tomb site, you can make a stroll alongside the shore

The tomb is only a rock on sea, and you can't approach near it. It is famous for its historic story, but not a must-see sight.

It was lovely even on cloudy day. The tomb is small and you can only watch it from the beach but the sea is beautiful. It is not an activity that lasts a whole day, so plan another activity for the same day you visit.

the village is not a nice village , not nice houses but just a semi deserted land and the view of simple rocks cannot be discribed like a monument, it's so disappointing

It's located on the east coast, so sunrise is the time to go. The sun sets behind you in the hills. Evening photos around Anapchi Pond look more interesting than the beach. If you want a good sunrise, follow the crowds up to... More
