Spring in Jeju Island


Best time to visit
While the spring season in Jeju Island spans from early-March to May in general, the peak season lasts from early-March until early April, which is when you can fully enjoy the stunning spring flowers on the island.

Spring weather in Jeju is mild and pleasant. The weather conditions may vary across the island but the weather is gorgeous for outdoor activities during the day, with average high temperatures of 12~14ºC (53.6~57.2ºF). But take note that it can still be chilly at night.

※Make sure you watch the weather forecast for the indication of rain before you go!

What to wear & pack
Casual and lightweight clothes that can be layered work best, and wear sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and hats.

For those who want to fully enjoy Jeju’s spring, check out the 3 best destinations where you can find the best view of these beautiful spring flowers on the island.

3 Best Places to Visit During Spring

1. Seongsan Ilchulbong Sunrise Peak

Located on the eastern coast of Jeju Island, Seongsan Ilchulbong, also known as Seongsan Sunrise Peak, is a famous volcanic cone designated as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

The peak itself does not offer canola flowers but you can find breathtaking canola fields near the peak, especially along Gwangchigi Beach.

Tip 1. If you book Trazy’s Jeju Island Spring Private Taxi/Van Tour, you will be able to stop by Noksan Road on the way to Seongsan Sunrise Peak, which is a fantastic cherry tree-lined driveway bursting with both canola flowers and cherry blossoms. You can also enjoy a ride along Aewol Coastal Road on the way to Hallim Park for a perfect spring getaway. For more information on the tour, click here.

Tip 2. If you want to get rid of all the hassles when traveling to Jeju Island, simply book Jeju Island Spring Special All-Inclusive Package! It includes a pick-up from your accommodation in Seoul, round-trip flight ticket, a private flower tour for 8 hours, hotel/airport pick-up & drop-off service, gas & toll fees, parking fees, and driver’s lunch. Accommodation and breakfast at Hotel Leo are optional.

Tip 3. If you have a valid driver’s license in Korea, renting a car is the best way to freely explore spring flower destinations in Jeju Island! You can easily book a Jeju Car Rental via Trazy and also take a look at this Jeju Car Rental blog.
