A day in Udo Island (우도)

Udo, (also called U-island, since do means island) is a tiny Island situated off the eastern coast of Jeju Island. It was named because it resembles a lying cow. Udo is one of the most visited spots in Jeju Island. It can be reached by multiple ferries which run from morning 8:00am till 6pm at Seongsan Port.

Although it is not a big Island, is better to spend one day here! For transportation you can rent a car or a scooter or a bicycle. You may also book a guesthouse here if you want to travel for more than one day.


There are lots of beautiful natural attractions on the Island and it is also full of amenities and tourism outlets! If you are in Jeju Island, you must not miss this little Udo!!

There are many kinds of lighthouse in different color and structure. There is a red one when you are on the ferry from Jeju Island to Udo Island. And also a white one looks perfect with the blue sky and blue sea. 

Udo has a variety of beaches (white sand, black sand, rock formations), therefore Summer will be a good season to travel where you can also swim or take a sunbath. 

Udo is famous for its locally grown peanuts. And therefor you can find peanut ice cream everywhere here! it was really yummy!

There are many restaurants and cafes in Udo. One of the most popular restaurant called 코코마마 which is famous for its lobster seafood set menu!

Udo is a really beautiful place where you will be able to relax and take many gorgeous scenery photos. You will definitely love this place if you love nature scenery:) 

To fully appreciate Udo Island and all it has to offer would definitely require more than a day!!
