Known as the island where fairies came from the heavens to dance, Seonjaedo boasts stunning scenery all around. It is full of treasures for visitors, including Mokseom, selected as the most beautiful island in Korea by CNN in 2012, unique cafes, fishing sites for amateurs and pros alike, a quaint mural village, and of course, the beaches. Explore this gem of an island that bustles with visitors on the weekends.
Ganghwado is a popular weekend getaway destination. But not everyone might have tried these two activities. First is the luge. The island boasts a 1.8-km-long luge track, the longest of its kind in Asia. Anyone can try this gravity-driven ride and enjoy the thrill of speed while taking in the stunning view of the West Sea. The second activity involves Ganghwado’s specialty, hwamunseok. Hwamunseok mats, made with local sedges that are toughened by the sea winds. Don’t stop at just admiring these exquisite handmade mats but try your hand at making your own!
Good accessibility, an ideally located observatory, and pretty cottages. The whole of Daebudo is like a large resort. The island offers dynamic sights, including the ever-changing sunset skies, that are beautiful in any season. Presenting the best of the West Sea, Daebudo is the place to explore the vast mudflats and try clam digging. But the real highlight of the island is the sunset. Head over to the Tando Port to end the day with an unforgettable sunset.
