Biyangdo Island: Dominating the Coastline of Hallim
Biyangdo Island, which means “the island that flew over”, was formed as a result of a volcanic eruption around 1,000 years ago, and bears the most recent traces of volcanic activity.
By ascending Biyangbong Peak, which has six peaks, one can see two craters.
The waterfront is ideal for bicycling or strolling. It is full of sights to see, such as a boulder resembling a mother carrying her baby on her back, a rock in the shape of an elephant, and a volcanic bomb. It takes 2 hours to traverse the entire waterfront by foot, and the trip will provide a chance to explore Biyangbong Peak and Haean-gil Trail.
The area is rich in fish species making it a popular destination for anglers.
Around 100 residents from 40 or so households live in the island, and the lack of drinking water is resolved by connecting Biyangdo Island with the main island at Hallim.
The ferry that travels between the island and Hallim Port can reach its destination in 15 minutes.
