Welcome to Byeonsan-bando National Park
Byeonsan-bando (변산반도국립공원) is Korea's only national park that can boast of both mountains and sea. During the summer months, sandy Byeonsan Beach, backed by pines, and Gyeokpo Beach, with its dramatic cliffs and caves, are the top draws. From Gyeokpo, ferries depart for the island Wido, which has a sandy beach. Year-round there is hiking in the peaks that frame the temple Naeso-sa.
There's a tourist village at Gyeokpo Beach that serves as the transport hub, with eating options and lodgings.
