What are some of the best Jeju Attractions on the west side? See Hyeopjae Beach, Hallim Park and Cheonjeyeon Waterfall

The west side of Jeju has a lot to offer the eager explorer. Pearlescent beaches, lush gardens, mysterious mountain caves, and roaring waterfalls are only some of the attractions luring you to Jeju's wild, wild west. The first stop is Hyeopjae Beach, one of the most popular Jeju beaches. Tourists and locals enjoy walking through the petal-soft sand, cooling off in the emerald waters, and lounging in the sun. Next you'll go to Hallim Park. Hallim Park is a botanical oasis, with an eclectic collection of themed gardens. Palm Tree Road, Jeju Stone and Bonsai Garden, and the Water Garden are only some of the highlights here. The Hyeopaegul and Ssangyong Gul caves are big features at Hallim Park, and for good reason; they are the only two-dimensional caves in the world. The children particularly enjoy the amusement park. Known as the Hill of Wind, Suweolbong is a peak made almost entirely out of volcanic rock, and is widely admired for it's perfect layering. From the top, you can see Chagwa Island, Dansan, and Jukdo Isle. History is brought to life at the Jeju Second War Museum (Jeju Peace Museum). Founded in 2004, the Jeju Peace Museum has incredible displays of World War II weaponry and memorabilia. Moving sculptures honor those who died, and an intricate network of tunnels reveal and underground fortress built by Japanese Troops in preparation for the landing of American soldiers. The O'sulloc Tea Museum is a great place to learn about tea culture in Korea. The museum teaches visitors about the history of tea, and the importance it has to the Korean people. In fact, it's right there in the name; the "O" in "O'sulloc" meants to enjoy, and sulloc is a kind of tea. The building itself is a giant green-tea cup, and inside you can sample some of the tea the O'sulloc Tea Museum is named for. The tea's soothing qualities are enhanced by the lovely scenery; the lotus pond and indoor garden are great places to relax and reflect. Turn up the heat on a visit to Sanbangsan Mountain, a mountain made entirely of lava. Don't worry, the lava has long since cooled, and has formed lovely, intriguing shapes and slopes over time. 'Sanbangsan' means "a cave inside a mountain", and that is exactly what you can find within. From the Sanbangsan cave, you get an unrivalled view of the ocean. The Jeju Teddy Bear Museum is an cuteness overload. Learn about the origin of children's favorite cuddly buddy on a tour of the museum. You'll be taken back more than 100 years in teddy history. Look around at the display of stuffed bears of all shapes and sizes. According to legend, the Cheonjeyeon waterfall is a meeting place for nymphs to frolic and bathe beneath the cooling cascade. Cheonjeyeon means "pond of God", and there certainly is something godly about this place. The first tier of the Cheonjeyeon waterfall is 22 metres high, flowing into the 30 metre second tier. As you walk across the Seven Nymphs Bridge, you'll get a full view of the Cheonjeyeon waterfall. East of the waterfall, a cave is said to have water with healing properties. Beside the Cheonjeyeon waterfall is the verdant Yeomiji Botanical Gardens, adding to the overall beauty of the wild surroundings.
