A unique place on volcanic rocks
Located in the southwestern part of the Korean Peninsula, Wando is one of the country's leading producer of marine products. More than half of the national seaweed production is produced there (this number rises to 70% for dashima seaweed), and 80% of abalone produced in Korea are produced in Wando.
Composed of 256 large and small islands, Wando benefits from a warm climate of a preserved marine space, favored by the excellent purification capacity conferred by the marine afforestation, and the intertidal zone. It is in this clean water that seaweed and seafood develop their unique taste, drawn from the 'maekbandeok' stone, found in the seabed of the region.
