Bogildo Island (보길도)

Update date: 2021-09-04


[tourist site]
Located about 12 kilometers away from Wando Port, Bogildo Island was once inhabited by a famous Joseon poet named Yun Seon-do, who found the island by chance when he sought shelter from a typhoon he encountered on his way to Jeju Island. During his 10-year stay on the island, he built 25 buildings, including Seyeonjeong and Nakseonjae Pavilions. His most noted work "Eobusasisa" was also written here.

The island has three beautiful beaches, serving as a popular vacation destination. The southernmost Yesong-ri Beach is especially popular for its astounding views with a 1.4-kilometer stretch of pebbled shore with an evergreen forest nearby.
