Located to the west of Byeonsan Peninsula, Wido Island was once the lonely destination of exiled government officials during the Goryeo Dynasty (AD 918-1392). Wido is more famous for its salt-water fishing than for its sightseeing, and has maintained its pristine beauty because it has few visitors.

Most impressive is the vast sand beach known as Wido Beach. Among other attractions are Chido Village, where “Moses Miracle” occurs twice a day, as well as other splendid coastal scenery little known to the public. For those who bring their cars, the coast road offers a stunning drive along the blue sea.
