As it has formed along the cliff on the coastal terrace, difficult to see in the southern seas, it is called Bireonggil. Between the bottomless cliff's bermes, there is Geumosup Forest, used for Chosun Kingdom's palace's construction material. It is a narrow way, walking through themovie shooting attraction spot where movies My Mother the Mermaid, Blood Rain,and Bedevilled has been shooted. Geumodo Island is a place that seems like it would have a golden terrapin somewhere. The blindingly blue ocean that can be seen in Bireonggil mountain climbing will be an energizer that can recharge tedious life.

Geumodo Island, an island at the edge of the southern seas, has large and small rocks of fantastic shapes scattered nearby, which even causes marvelous feelings to pass by. It is especially praised as a fishing spot for black porgies throughout the year so angler's footsteps never cease, and the whole of the marine road is receiving attention as a walking course. Moreover, it was a prohibited forest that ordinary men could not enter during Chosun Dynast. As a lumber camp, a deer farm, and others that were being used from the palace were located there, it makes it even more mysterious.
