Gangneung coffee street
There’s a sea with coffee scent in Gangneung
Anmok beach where cafes lined up along the coastline, forming exotic scenery.
The Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Korea Tourism Organization have chosen this place for three times in a row as 'the Top 100 Must-Visit Tourist Spots' which is chosen once in two years starting from 2015.
The connection between the Anmok and the coffee began in the 1980s when coffee vending machines were introduced here. People found romance with the taste of coffee while seeing the ocean. It was a nostalgic flavor to enjoy with a few coins. Café was created as a space for those who want to enjoy the pleasure longer and soon it became a sanctuary for baristas and coffee lovers.
All cafe windows of Gangneung Coffee Street are directed at the sea. So you can enjoy coffee overseeing scenery of the sea. There is also the coffee vending machine, which was once called "Gil Dabang", keeping its place and giving memories to people who miss old time mood.
Sea and coffee are representative images that come to mind when you think of Gangneung. The sea symbolizing romantic space and the coffee symbolizing relaxation stimulate nostalgia for Gangneung.
Aranabi is a compound word of 'Ara', which is a Korean word for the sea, and 'Nabi,' which is a butterfly. You can enjoy the pleasure of flying above the blue sea with a zip line of 600m wire between Namhangjin Beach and Gangneung Port. It was also used as a torchlight course during the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics.
