About Udo Island, Jeju-si

The name 'Udo' literally means 'cow' - the locals think that the island looks like a cow lying down. 3.5 km off the coast of Jeju, the island can be reached by ferry. The island is a lava plateau. Most of the land is used to grow crops such as sweet potatoes, garlic, and peanuts. Visited by about a million people every year, its landscape is quite pretty. Its main attractions are:

  • The Seobin Baeksa coral beach
  • The Hagosudong beach
  • The Dongangyoeng cave
  • Udo Museum
  • The Udobong Peak lighthouse

The rustic island has something old worldly about it, and it doesn't look like the Korea you're probably used to.
