Summary Info

This beach located to the west of Imjado is the longest and largest in Korea. Its sandy beach is 12㎞ long and 300m wide. It takes 1hour 20 minutes to walk from end to end and 30 minutes by bike. The horizontal line above the sandy beach is lyrical and beautiful. As this place is too far from the inland, it has not been known to many people, but as a bridge is now open and boat services are present from Jido to Imjado, lots of people come and visit to take a look. This beach, which has been designated as a national tourism attraction since 1990, has outstanding natural conditions in water temperature, gentle slope, and wide sandy beach as well as convenient facilities such as a play ground, a natural grass field, sports facilities, parking areas, and accommodation. Mokpo University Training Center was opened at this beach and a youth center is under construction. Small and large inhabited and uninhabited islands nearby the beach attract anglers as the ocean is full of sea bass, striped beakperch. sea eels, and croakers. The sea off the beach is always calm as the beach works as a breakwater. The sand is fine and the soft ganister sand can be used as a raw material for glass. As the back of the beach is filled with sweet briers, corn pines, and acacia trees, which cools the hot weather of mid-summer, it is considered one of the four best beaches in Sinan. Sweetbriers are a county flower of Sinangun. Next to Daegwang Beach, there is a large oasis surrounded by sweetbriers. Imjado is made of sandy dunes and local fields and mountains are covered with sand when a violent wind from the sea blows. According to a geologist, Imjado has the geological shape of a desert which can be seen in the Middle East. So it is called the only desert in Korea. Yong and Nan Gul Beach, Eundong Beach, Jeonjangpo, Mt. Daedun and Mt. Bulgap are accompanying attractions
