Lighthouse Island from Retail Waterway

A mysterious island that opens a vast and mongdol-gil, healing trekking, Tongyeong retail water ~ lighthouse island

Tongyeong, Gyeongnam, Korea

Tongyeong, a beautiful port city in the South Sea of Hallyeosu Island. The scent of culture and art, as well as the land spreading gently, is a jewel-like island scattered in the Tongyeong Sea. Among the numerous islands he embraced, he left for the rock formations, lighthouse islands, and retail outlets where “Mysterious Sea Road” unfolds. Finding a fairy tale island on a summer day.
Apparently, the retail price was 'island in fairy tales'. The retail road that was headed to a winter alone in the middle of the twenties was a pretty and Jericho island. Thanks to me, I used to think of it like my first love. Then, after about 10 years, “I still wondered, how did it change?” With a little bit of anticipation and excitement, the retail road that I found again was not a cute island, but a mountain. The body that has become heavy over the years has also played a role, but the retail product was not just the “small and beautiful island” that appeared in the confectionary CF.
It seems that the 'biasedness' about retail sales wasn't the only reporter. At first glance, I see beautiful women wearing high shoes that are sure to be new sandals. Pretty, but like any other island in the vast sea, comfortable shoes are a must to look around in the sleeves of 'Dolsan'.
Picturesque scenery created by wind and waves
Myeongdo Island is composed of three islands: Daemaemuldo, Retail Muldo, and Lighthouse Island. Among them, the retail waterway and the lighthouse island meet each other, making a path over the sea twice or twice a day. Located in the middle of the sea, the two islands facing each other as if they depended on each other boast excellent scenery thanks to the heavy waves and the rocks depicted by the wind. This is the reason why many people are looking for retail goods among the numerous islands that have filled the sea and the sea of Tongyeong, such as Hansando, Chubongdo, Yokjido, and Bijindo.
To go to the retail waterway, you have to take a boat at the Tongyeong Passenger Ship Terminal. Departs three times daily (06:50, 10:50, 14:30). Departures increase during peak season or weekends. Also, it is flexible depending on the weather and passenger situation, so it is better to check in advance. Especially during the summer vacation, the weather fluctuates depending on the weather, so check it again and again.
Bijindo Coral Beach stops at retail
How long has it been? The boat stops for a moment after passing through Hansando. Bijindo is famous for its beautiful coast. Even in the passenger ship, fine white sand beaches can be seen at a glance. People go back to the ocean, where the half-loaded ship continues to endlessly. Approximately 2.5 hours (about 756 pyeong) after 1 hour and 20 minutes of departure
Passenger ships that reached retail docks
As soon as you get off the boat, the ascent begins. Houses are gathered on steep slopes. On the quayside, there are convenience facilities such as accommodations and restaurants such as <Lighthouse Sashimi House>, <Dasol Pension>, <Retail Muldo Pension>. Retails also began to visit
The view of retail water from the dock
If you've solved both, start immediately. The road to Lighthouse Island leads to steep stone steps and wooden decks that run through the village. As the island rises in the middle of the sea, there is no way to go uphill. There is a shade that rests in the middle, so you can walk slowly.
The island sleeves also have a steep uphill path.
After a short walk in the shade, a forked road emerges. All of them are on the way to Lighthouse Island, but if you go to the left, you can directly reach Lighthouse Island, and if you go to the right, you can also stop at the retail store, Mangtaebong. If you want to photograph the great scenery of Lighthouse Island, we recommend the right path. Of course, you can go directly to Lighthouse Island. On the way home, even if you stop by Mantaebong
When you get off the boat, it overlooks the village and the marina.
Lighthouse Island crossing the Mongdol that rises above the sea
When you climb to the top of Mangtaebong, you can see the Customs History Office for sale. It was a former customs surveillance post that monitored smuggling around the South Coast in the 1970s and 1980s. The peaks of the net, the name of “Mantaebong,” is well suited to the lighthouse island scenery as well as the distant ocean.
Myeongdo-do Customs Office located in Mangtaebong
The foot of Mangtaebong and the picturesque Lighthouse Island unfold before your eyes. You can see Byeongpung Rock, the representative image of Gingsinggulgul and Mulmuldo Island, where the emperor of the Emperor Qin Shi, who came to save Bulcho, carved letters.
From Mantaebong to Lighthouse Island
That's it. Thanks to the clear weather, Daegu Eulbido and Sogu Eulbido appear far away. There will soon be a row of cobblestone paths connecting the retail waterway and the lighthouse island. I descend to the coast to go to Lighthouse Island.
The lighthouse island seen from the top view of Mangtaebong
If you find a retail waterway, cross the Lighthouse Island, which you will never miss. The retail island and the lighthouse island are about 80m away, but at low tide twice a day, a small “miracle of Moses” occurs between them. Mongdol Beach, also known as 'Yeolmokgae Gravel Road', is exposed above the sea. If you match the boat time and tide time, you can have a “special experience” that crosses the Mongdol towering over the sea and crosses the lighthouse island and retail waterway.
The retail view from Lighthouse Island
The cobbled road that leads from the large stones like dinosaur eggs to the small mongdols of various sizes is a little uncomfortable to walk, but it is unparalleled in the special experience of walking on the sea.
Lighthouse Island from Mongdolgil
The stairs continue through Mongdol to the lighthouse. The slope is a little steep, but it can be reached in 10 minutes. Don't miss the scenery of the retail water view from Lighthouse Island. In this way, it took enough time for the retail to pass from the pier to Mangtaebong to Lighthouse Island. It is time to add photos. Adding up to the time to go back again is enough for about 4 hours round trip. If you come in the first boat (6:50 AM) from the Tongyeong Passenger Ship Terminal and go out to the last boat (4:30 PM), there is no reason to wander around the island. The most important tide time is the National Maritime Survey ( http://www.khoa.go.kr ).
Retail water is also normal
At the pier, there are also ships to and from Tongyeong and Geoje, as well as cafes and restaurants. The fun of shooting the sea breeze while waiting for the ship to enter is also quite impressive. Wealth if time comes
Viewing Lighthouse Island and returning to the marina
TIP. Retail trekking
It is also called Myeongdo-do by bundling Daemaeul-do, Retail and also Lighthouse Island. A retail island that tourists usually visit is a small island of 2.5km, located alongside Lighthouse Island. Retail items also climbed from the dock to Mangtaebong. The main course to Lighthouse Island is 3-4 hours round trip. However, time and water
TIP. Tongyeong↔Retail water distribution
Departs three times a day (06:50, 10:50, 14:30) from Tongyeong Passenger Terminal (1666-0960, 055-645-3717). Peak season increases. Please check in advance as there are changes to the ship depending on the weather and the number of passengers. 3 times a day from the retail waterway to Tongyeong Port (08:35, 12:35, 1 http://island.haewoon.co.kr/ ), Hansol Shipping ( http://hshaewoon.co.kr ).
