The top draws here are Hilton Golf Namhae Resort, Daraengi Village, Geumsan Boriam Rock, Sangju Beach, Mijohang Port, Haeoreum Art Village and a German Village.

Next is Geojedo and its surrounding islands. Top tourist picks include Oedo Paradise Island, Haegeumgang (naturally formed rock sculptures and mountain-like rock islands in the ocean), 62 islands and almost 10 beach areas. Recommend Hakdong Pebble Beach, where small pebbles in a variety of colors dot the shore.
