If the timing is right, the “Mystic Sea Road” is definitely one of the must-see events in Korea. This year, the “Muchangpo Mystic Sea Road Festival” will take place for only three days from August 23 to 25 at Muchangpo Beach in Boryeong, Chungcheongnam-do.

The festival is one of the most famous summer events in Korea. Visitors can experience the mysterious parting of the sea, which creates a 1.5km path from Muchangpo Beach to the nearby Seokdaedo Island. During the festival period, fireworks, clam collecting, bare handed fishing, musical concerts, magic shows, as well as a variety of other events will take place.

If you are planning on making the trip down to see the mysterious sea parting, make sure to double check the date and times to ensure you have the best experience.
