Wando is the center of archipelago marine national park with around 200 cities. It is a heavenly tourist destination with the cleanest sea in Korea offering clear water, clean white sand and odd-shaped rocks at each and every corner of island.
1200 years ago, the marine king Jang Bogo built Cheonghaejin in Wando. Also, Chungmugong Yi Sunshin built Gogeumjin before the battle against Hideyoshi's invasion of Korea and overcame the national crisis. Also, Gosan Yun Sundo, sang about the beautiful nature in his poem Eobusasisa, recognized as the best of Korean classic poetry from Joseon Dynasty.
Previously, Wando was undervalued for its inconvenient transportation that can only be reached by boat, but things have changed much recently. Wando Port has become a trade port, bridges were constructed and expressways and national highways were expanded and built, hence increasing the accessibility. Also, the land of cleanest and most beautiful maritime tourism resources in Korea has become the valuable land saved for you.

U-chul Shin, Governor of Wando
