Namwon Port is well-known as the starting point of Jeju Olle Walking Trail No. 5. The inner port is more or less original and is thus very special and attractive. In midsummer the seawater pool is popular with kids, though social distancing has temporarily put a halt to this pleasant pastime. In the evening, anglers come around the port to fish for squid, among other things. Namwon Port is centrally located in Namwon-eup so your dining experience will consist of a wide range of options, especially fresh seafood.
Namwon 1-ri Port is also called Jaesanigae, implying the accumulation of wealth. It was named this because people who worked in and around the port became wealthy as a result of the abundant fishing and the production of salt, which was a valuable commodity.
