Located in Baengnyeong Island (¹é·Éµµ: ÛÜÖ¿Óö), , 45.8-sq. km island, closer to North Korean coast than South Korea, Dumujin's Seondaeam is one of the most frequently visited islands.
Dumujin is designated as nation's No. 8 natural beauty, and the most beautiful place on the Baengnyeong Island.
Dumujin (ÔéÙëòÐ) is named after the shape of two military generals having a meeting head to head. It literally means "two generals' port."
Baengnyeong Island (sometimes spelled Baekryeong; ¹é·Éµµ in Korean) is a 45.8-square-kilometre (17.7 sq mi) island in Ongjin County, Incheon, South Korea, located near the Northern Limit Line, which is the maritime demarcation between North and South Korea.
It has a population of approximately 4,329, according Wikipedia.
The meaning of its name is "white wing island (ÛÜÖ¿Óö)," since the island resembles an Ibis flying with the wings spread.
Given its proximity to North Korea, it has served as a base for intelligence activity by the R.O.K.
Numerous North Korean defectors have also boated here to escape economic and political conditions in their homeland. In the recent past there have been several naval skirmishes between the two countries in the area.
