Beaches across the country have been opening one after another since yesterday.

12 beaches in the Jeju area have also completed preparations to welcome guests and started full-scale operation.

After three years, I can take off my mask and enjoy swimming at the beach.

We will connect with reporters who are out on Jeju Beach and find out about it. Reporter Go Jae-hyung!

Yes, it is at Hyeopjae Beach in Jaeju.

[앵커]

Are there already many people at the beach?

[기자]

Yes, here Hyeopjae Beach has been visited by many people since morning.

Most of them come to the beach to escape the heat.

Jeju has been so hot that a heat wave advisory has been in effect for a week in some areas.

When you think of the beach, the first thing that comes to mind is playing in the water.

Adults and children alike are cooling off from the heat by playing in the clear blue sea.

There are long lines of parasols on the white sandy beach.

Due to the lifting of the distance, it is almost impossible to see empty places like before Corona 19.

Visitors sometimes take a break while looking at Biyangdo Island in the distance.

Children are having fun playing in the sand.

There are 12 public beaches in Jeju Island, including Hyeopjae Beach.

Yesterday everyone was officially open and welcoming visitors.

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people can enjoy the beach without a mask for the first time in three years.

Even if you take off your mask outdoors and enjoy summer, don’t forget to wear a mask indoors.

Jeju Island inspected beaches before opening and prepared everything to welcome guests.

In order to prepare for a safety accident, about 330 firefighters and civilian water safety personnel were deployed, and about 30 Coast Guard marine patrols were deployed.

Last year, about 940,000 people visited Jeju’s beaches due to the impact of COVID-19.

Jeju Island is expected to increase significantly this year.

Until now, this is Jaehyung Ko from YTN at Hyeopjae Beach in Jeju.
