Seonyudo Island is one of the West Sea’s hidden treasures. Taoist hermits were said to gain their miraculous powers here. Today, this island is considered the most beautiful of the Gogunsan’s 63 islands.

Visitors to Seonyudo Island are given an abundance of activities to try here including hiking, fishing, clam digging, ziplining and more.

The wooden deck along Seonyudo’s northern coastline is an easy and beautiful walk. Check out Myeongsasimni Beach with white sands stretching across 1.5 kilometers great for a picnic and swimming on a hot summer’s day.
