The West Sea is full of things that 'Donghae' does not have. The arithmetic depth does not match the East Sea, but it is deeper than any deep sea when approaching the chest. Not the hot and energetic sunrise of the East Sea, but the relaxing and calm afternoon colors, and the scenery like relaxation at sunset at dusk. . Unlike the rough and cool East Sea, the West Sea is full of calmness and calmness, and the West Sea is filled with the smell of the depths of our lives.
Taean, which has been known as a peaceful and comfortable town since ancient times, is a representative tourist spot on the west coast that retains the beauty of the west sea. The wonderful beach path spreads casually, and you can enjoy the spectacular sunset from anywhere. The picturesque scenery that unfolds with numerous islands in harmony shows why this is Taeanhaean National Park.

Opened in 2002, the Konam Shell Museum exhibits a variety of shell mound artifacts, including excavated and investigated remains of the Neolithic Era, and various tools made of earthenware, stoneware, bones, and clams.
Konam Shell Museum
There is a permanent exhibition hall, a video room, an experiential exhibition room, an exhibition hall equipped with an experiential learning room, and a second exhibition hall displaying artifacts related to agriculture, fishing, and harvesting in Taean.
The ramp to the first exhibition hall
The artifacts found in the shells are the main sights, but various experiences such as fishing, trick art, photo albums, making shellfish hats, matching earthenware puzzles, and tuhu are also popular.
There are two parking spaces for the disabled and one parking area for pregnant women in the closest to the exhibition hall, and there are wide and gentle slopes at the entrances of the first and second exhibition halls.
Seashell hat decoration experience
Another advantage is that there is no step inside the exhibition hall. However, the ramp going down from the second exhibition hall to the yard needs some help from Gapala assistants.
Museum courtyard tuho amusement facilities
There are two wheelchairs and two strollers for rent, and there is a toilet for both men and women with disabilities in the first exhibition hall.
Exhibition Hall 1 Disabled Toilet
Anmyeonsong Healing Spot, Anmyeondo Natural Recreation Forest
It is a place where you can see some of the best pine forests in the country. In Korea, 135ha of wonderful forests, which are the only pine trees around 100 years old, fill the recreational forest.
Sol Forest Trail
Pine trees native to Anmyeondo are especially called 'Anmyeonsong' and have been in the spotlight as luxury pine trees since ancient times.
Disabled parking area close to promenade
There are various courses that you can take a walk along the evergreen pine forest. For a wheelchair, a walkway of 500 m or more from the ticket office to the Forest Hall is good.
Pine Trail View

'Café Isle', which adds coffee aroma to the aroma of the sea
'Café Isle' on Kkotji Beach is a romantic place with a wide window full of beautiful West Sea.
Cafe Isle with ramps
It is a small cafe with only three or four tables, but the sea through the window is wider and greener than anywhere else.
Inside the cafe with both sides of glass
If the day is good, it is better to enjoy the calm West Sea without clogging. There seems to be no place like this because of the rest during the trip.
Cafe Isle's Outdoor Terrace

There is a parking space right in front of the cafe entrance, and a ramp is installed on the way to the cafe. There is no chin on the door, so it is easy to go in and out, and there is no problem in moving inside the cafe, which is not spacious. However, there is a small gravel on the floor of the parking lot, so an assistant is needed when entering the cafe from the car. The toilet has a chin and is narrow, so it is difficult to use it while in a wheelchair.

Flower Island Beach in front of Cafe Isle
The sunset of Kkotji Beach to be seen once in a lifetime
There is a saying that 'the person who has seen a lot of the scenery that is falling is really rich'. Flower garden is one of the three sunset spots in Korea.
Bench with a good view of the grandmother and grandmother
CNN was also considered a beautiful place to visit in Korea.
Grandmother and Grandmother Rock Information Board
The sunset scenery that falls over the grandmother's rock and the grandmother's rock, conveyed by the sad legend of Mido, the wife who became a mess while waiting for the return of the soldiers and the return of a soldier, is a masterpiece.
The sun falling to the side of the grandmother's rock
There is a two-lane road between the parking lot and the coastal park overlooking the Ghalmi-Habibi Rock, so be careful of vehicles when crossing.
Disabled parking area in coastal park
There are 18 handicapped parking areas near the coastal park, and there is a toilet with toilets for disabled men and women on either side of the parking lot.

Entrance to coastal park without steps

Secret Garden, Cheonnipo Arboretum, returned after 40 years

It is the largest botanical garden in Korea with 15,800 plant species, including native plants in Korea and imported species from more than 60 countries around the world.It was originally a private arboretum for research purposes, but was released to the public since 2009.
Nakwoosong, a beauty tree in the arboretum
Founded in 1921 in Pennsylvania, USA, it was founded by Min Byung-Gal, who became a Korean in 1979.
Cheonnipo Arboretum is easy to move with deck
In the arboretum, there is a separate “route without stairs” that goes around the arboretum, including the main space.
Trails with Cheonnipo Beach
This route is suitable for a wheelchair tour. However, there are some slopes in the middle, and assistance is needed.
Waterway with wooden boards considering wheelchair users
In addition, a braille plate engraved on a stainless steel plate is attached to the guide plate, and a wooden plate is placed on the cover of the waterway crossing the road so that a wheelchair can pass.

It was designated as Natural Monument No. 431 in 2001, and is called the “Korean Desert”.
The road from Sinduri Sand Dune Center to the sand dune entrance
The animals and plants inhabiting here, such as Gojiri-sacho, Gaegyeongryeong, Sunbiki, gourd dust worm, ant ghost, 삵, and baby hornbill, are more unusual because they are rarely seen.
Rooftop of Sinduri Sand Dune Center
It is a good idea to visit the Sinduri Sand Dunes Center at the entrance before visiting the coastal sand dunes.
Sinduri Sand Dunes and Course A Trail
After exploring the sand dune center, go to the back gate, and the trail leads.
A course deck with sea and coastal dunes at a glance

Herb Shop Studio
Even if there is not enough space for a wheelchair, it is enough to have a time of healing while admiring the pretty garden.
Road from ticket office to garden
It is a pity that most of the 12 charming gardens are located on a hilltop and cannot be explored in a wheelchair.
Herb Shop Studio
There is no step on the road between the gardens, but it is slightly uncomfortable to move in a wheelchair because it has a green Pytex flooring instead of pavement. Activity assistants are required.
Castle Garden with an impressive pyrancan fruit
The disabled parking area is not separated. There is one toilet for men and women with disabilities in the hub shop studio behind the ticket office.

Accommodation information for ‘handicapped rooms’
