    Introduction
    During ancient times, when King Jin-heung of the Silla Kingdom reigned, a mysterious occurrence gripped many with both a sense of fascination and fear. According to legendary myth, a sudden massive thunderstorm took nine dragons to heaven. That is where Guryongpo (meaning Nine Dragons) Beach got its name.

    What makes this destination so special is its climate and geographical location. Featuring a hilly terrain, warm winter and cool summer weather, and a long shoreline extending to about 15.8 kilometers, Guryongpo Beach is an ideal getaway. The Guryeongpo seaport is well developed because of its inshore fishery, as it is the heart of the major fishing industry within the district. Here one can find cuttlefish, mackerel pikes, mother crabs, and other delicacies that are caught and shipped to the markets. With the fish boats and buoys gently swaying in the background, and seagulls gliding peacefully overhead, Guryeong-po beach is an ideal location to watch the beautiful sunrise during the winter months.

    Guryeongpo beach, which is favored by many tourists not only for its beauty but also for being the perfect summer getaway, is only about 24 kilometers away from the city of Pohang and 1.5 kilometers from the town of Guryeongpo. The half-moon shaped shoreline, with a length of about 400 meters and a width of over 50 meters, is favored most amongst campers who find the place a perfect summer getaway.
