Yeosu

The hometown of famous Korean hero Admiral Yi Sun-shin, Yeosu is known for its lovely beaches, fresh seafood, and busy harbors.

The city of Yeosu consists of the Yeosu peninsula as well as 317 islands. Thanks to the sea wind and warm current, Yeosu has cool summers and mild winters. Its ocean climate also brings Yeosu relatively longer springs and autumns than other regions.
