To protect U-do(island) Japanese raiders, Koreans up a camp in Hado-ri in 1510(King Joongjon’s 5th year, Joseon Dynasty) and built a fortress. In the fort were official residences and armory, and there were three gates to the East, West, and South. Through the restoration, you can see both the old fortress and the new one. It is Jeju's Monument #24.
At the top, you get a panoramic view of the bird sanctuary, U-do(island), Seongsan Ilchul-bong (peak), the East Sea, the field of Seongsan, Malmi Oreum, Al Oreum, and Oreum colonies in the east of Jeju. This part of Jeju is considered the tail of the island, thus the area has nickname 'the end,' or 'jimi.' The head is at Dumo-ri in Hankyeong-myeon
Up to 3,000 birds of 30 different kinds pay a visit to the bird sanctuary every winter. A field of reeds makes it the perfect refugee for birds in winter and also breeding places in summer. The birds include the rare blackfaced spoonbill, osprey, white-tailed sea eagle, mallard, Kentish plover, bean goose, and so many others. It is a special protection area.
A small island near the Hado-ri Ocean. It is Korea's only crinum colony. Snow white crinum flowers cover the island in summer. Because the island looks just like a white bunny, it gained the nickname 'Tokki(rabbit) Island.' Crinum is an evergreen perennial of a daffodil kind, coastal vegetation in the warm temperate zone. Crinum of the bunny island is Natural Monument #19.
In Hado-ri and Jongdal-ri, there are small yet clean and beautiful beaches. Both have fine sands and a fantastic view. With not too many visitors, it is very cozy to spend time at the beach.
