Geoje [1](거제, 巨濟, also Geoje-do), formerly romanised as Koje, is an island in South Gyeongsang province, South Korea.

Understand

Dubbing itself the "Blue City", Geoje is not so much a city but an island -- Korea's second largest in fact -- and a loose collection of villages and settlements scattered in coves around the coastline. The two largest of these are Okpo (옥포) on the east coast and Gohyeon (고현) on the west. Most of the tourist sites lie between these two settlements around, and just off, the southern coastline.
