Gapado Island is 5.5 km away from Moseulpo Port, south of Seogwipo-si, Jeju-do.
Dutchman Hendrik Hamel stumbled upon the shores of Jeju-do and later introduced the island to the West. The island has a monument for Hamel, set up to honor his contributions to Jeju. Gapa Green Barley Festival is held every year in May, and a ferry also runs from Moseulpo Port to Gapado Island, and operates two times a day.
How To Go There:
From Seogwipo Intercity Bus Terminal, take an intercity bus bound for Seogwi, Sagye, Jeju and get off at Hamo-ri Bus Stop (29 bus stops).
Walk along the coast for 9 minutes to reach Moseulpo Port.
Take a ferry to Gapado Island at the port.
