Wolmido Island's Culture Street is another popular tourist site that is busy on weekends with large crowds of visitors milling about and enjoying the area's fine dining and recreational facilities. The streets are lined with seafood restaurants and coffee shops that offer great views of the ocean.

Wolmi Park on Wolmido Island was the site of an army base for around 50 years before it was turned into a garden and opened to the public in 2001. The area's natural beauty is well preserved and the well-kept path leading up to the mountain top offers a pleasant hike. At the summit, visitors are treated to a great view of the Wolmi Observatory and the Wolmi Dondae Lookout Post.
