Dadohae Haesang National Park/South Korea

Introducing Dadohae Haesang National Park

Consisting of over 1700 islands and islets and divided into eight sections, Dadohae Haesang (Marine Archipelago) National Park occupies much of the coast and coastal waters of Jeollanam-do. Some of the isles support small communities with income from fishing and tourism; others are little more than tree-covered rocks.

Mokpo is the gateway to the western sector, including Hongdo and Heuksando, the most visited and scenic of the islands. They are great places to beat the heat of July and August, so booking of ferries and accommodation is advised in those months.
