Wido(위도) is an island in North Jeolla.


Get in[edit]

The only way to get to Wido is by ferry from Gyeonkpo in Buan County, North Jeolla.

If you have satellite navigation just enter the name of the ferry terminal in Gyeokpo - 격포항 여객터미널. You can take your car on the ferry which costs 15,000 won per car plus 9,000 won per person.

Take a bus from Buan Terminal to Gyeokpo Terminal (격포 시와 터미널). From the bus terminal in Gyeokpo walk along the road ahead, past Hanaro Mart on your right, turn right, then once you pass the fish market on your right turn left to the port (takes about 10 mins).

There is a coast road around the circumference of the island which is very nice to driving along, plus two roads that go across the island.
