Welcome to Dadohae Haesang National Park
Consisting of more than 1700 islands and islets and divided into eight sections, Dadohae Haesang (Marine Archipelago) National Park (다도해해상국립공원) occupies much of the coast and coastal waters of Jeollanam-do. Some of the isles support small communities with fishing and tourism income; others are little more than tree-covered rocks.
The town of Mokpo is the gateway to the western sector, including Hongdo and Heuksando, the most visited and scenic of the islands. In July and August the boats fill up, so book ahead.
