Beomseom Island


This island is named because it supposedly looks like a crouching tiger, and a Jeju travel website says ‘The island has mysterious spots as well as graceful scenery’. I don’t have the imagination to see any resemblance to a tiger or anything else – it looks like an island to me. However, it’s very impressive to see as you drive down the road towards the shoreline.


Unsurprisingly, the shoreline is volcanic. The black rocks are full of cracks and fissures and holes, providing a habitat for shellfish and other things. I’m not sure what the correct identification of the things in the photo below is and I’m hoping someone will help me out. Are they sea anemones, or tube anemones, or something else?
