5. Haeneom-i Cafe (해넘이 카페)

This place is located just beside the park, but we have to take the rightest way to go there. Relax for a moment with a cold drink and cake while looking up at the bright clouds. In this cafe, there is a 'Stairs to Heaven', one of the photo zones with Oido Beach and sky background. It is also look prettier on sunset time.

Ah ya, you may also take a picnic theme here, actually my friend and I wanted to take a picnic set here, but we cancelled our plan because the sun was too hot at that time.

Note: If you have a time, you may also visit or experience these things

- Take a mobile cart to enjoy the scenary of Oido Coast. The cart is standy by near the Oido Red Lighthouse. We planned to take it after lunch, but unfortunately it was open after sunset. Too dark to enjoy the beach scenary. 

- Have a picnic set on the Haeneom-i Cafe when the weather is nice. We cancelled the plan because of the strong sun.

- Visit the Siheung Oido Museum.
