| It is a local port at Cheonsu Bay-side, located 25km south
from Hongseong-ub. In 10minutes distance on boat, there is the famous
bamboo island, Jukdo, and Anmyeondo can be seen too. It has beautiful
coastal sceneries. Cockles, which had never existed there before,
have begun breeding since the seadike construction, and currently
its harvest has grown so much that it has become one of Jukdo’s
main source of income. |
At Namdang Port, lots of prawn·cockles·flatfish·armorclad
rockfish etc are caught, and so every September~October since 1996
Prawn Festival is opened. Many tourists who wish to purchase freshly
caught seafood directly by themselves or those who wish to enjoy
the experience seek this place. Since the seadike construction,
Namdang Port became easy to approach from the metropolitan areas
as Western Coast Expressway was opened and coastal roads were expanded.
Its population increased, the number of raw fish restaurant owners
and fishermen increased, and it is becoming more vigorous day by
day as a fishing tour village visited by tourists every season.
Namdang Port, which is also a sphere of life for Jukdo people, is
where Anmyeondo can be seen across the sea, and where the sunset
is beautiful, turning everything golden. Namdang Port attracts the
attention of many people with a unique sentiment it evokes.
