Jeju: Sinchang Windmill Coastal Road (신창 풍차해안)

This is a windmill farm that sits on the coast of Sinchang in Jeju. I got to know about this place because the lighthouse here was featured in drama Warm and Cozy. The entire place came out really nice on the drama and I thought I should really check out this place. And also because I am a fan of windmills.

I guess I could safely say the whole Jeju trip was a little like checking out the filming sites for drama Warm and Cozy (Jeju Gatsby). That morning I woke up and felt really sad because I could hear the raindrops pitter pattering on windows. Out of all my days in Jeju, only the day when I’m supposed to leave, the sun came out. T^T what luck.

But it being a coastal road, it is beautiful! Despite the weather being really bad… But I guess it kind of adds mystery to the place?

Jeju buses
