For Catholics and Christians, most of you would have heard about the story of Moses helping the Israelites to cross the sea by parting the Red sea into two. Interestingly enough, this story can also be experience in Korea. Here at Jebudo island, it is a sand bank that appears as if the ocean is split into two. The sand bank, which looks especially beautiful under the sun, can be crossed by car but is better enjoyed on foot.

Grilled clams and spicy seafood stew made from fresh seafood are must-try dishes for anyone who visits the island. The 2.3-kilometer stretch of water between Jebu Island and Songgyo-ri, Seosin-myeon, parts twice a day when it is low tide. During this time the exposed foreshore which can be accessible for six hours until it is submerged by the tide.

According to belief, roughly 20 years ago, the people of Jebudo island would wade across the route, often getting soaked up to their waist, to reach the mainland. However, after cement pavement was installed in the late 1980’s, the route became quickly and easily accessible by car.

Also, you will be able to see many clam shells at the seashore. When you visit Jebudo Island,  don't forget to try the fresh seafood available just right across the seaside. There are many restaurants along the coast available.
