I guessed there was small island and could walk about 20~30 minutes. But we spent more time because there had some point to enjoy view. The distance to island was 10 minutes, but we wandered inside some point. Every point had variuos view, and good to rest. There was for free, and had light house, small round train, and some shops. Good to enjoy Yeosu sea and wind.

Odongdo Island wasn’t anything special while it was a nice spot to walk around in. Walking along the 1 km long walkway that connects the mainland to the island was more pleasant than the island itself. It’s a stretch to call this place a tourism destination as it’s basically a neighborhood park that happens to be near the ocean.

There is a facility to rent bicycle. Road from land to Odongdo and sea wall is good to ride bicycle. But one we chose to rent was yeosu city's facility. For my friend who is foreigner. It was quite difficult to use. I saw even Korean struggle to use. One cell phone number can only one bicycle.

Simple and easy hike around the island. Do note that there is quite a number of steps involved. There is a lighthouse, so remember to go up to the observatory for an excellent sea view, and overview of Yeosu.

Cute little island to visit if you have some time to spend in Yeosu. There are some paths bringing you to the cliffs on the island, we had a good time there in October, it was sunny and not cold at all. It felt nice to be out of the city and to just watch the boats passing by. I recommend for a relaxing afternoon, 1-2 hours trip.

offers nice view and walking trail. I would recommend a trolley ride for $1 to minimize the walk. Easier for rest of trip

The island is tiny and has some very nice views on the sea and the Yeosu port but it is unimpressive. Apparently it is beautiful in the blooming season but we were there at the end of May and there was not much to see. Right now (May/June 2019) the famous lighthouse is under renovation and inaccessible to tourists.

If you're in Yeosu and looking for an easy walk/hike, this is it. Its a bit of a trek along the wall to get to the island, but it's well set up. The path is marked and has stairs. Lots of stairs, in some places. But overall an easy walk/hike. Doesn't take long, wouldn't need anything special, though I wouldn't recommend any formal wear, esp footwear. But regular shoes are just fine. It doesn't take long and has some very beautiful scenic spots. Wonderful if you like nature.

I loved this place! My brother and I came here in the middle of summer, so we were so sweaty and hot. But the walk to Odongdo was worth it. We could have took a bus instead of walking the road, but we chose to walk there and bus back. There were so many trees and rocks (can't think of the right words to describe it exactly) but it was amazing. There is a specific tree that you will see while there as well... Definitely a place to visit!

Odongdo was recommended to me by my local friends. I caught the bus from the terminal in Gwangju and the ride was nice. Once you get to the small bus station in Yeosu, you’ll need to either walk (very far) or taxi to the pier. From the pier you will see the different bridges that connect the area.

The actual hike/walk throughout the island was really nice. Crowds weren’t large and there were seafood restaurants everywhere. There is an aquarium, cable car rides (lines are very long midday and walk up to cars without a car is long) and more. Perfect day trip. The beach was beautiful. I took a cab and he was so friendly. I met more people and ate more local seafood while watching the boats before sunset.

There are many small parts that make the whole of Odongdo, so stop by the tourism center, get your map and enjoy your time.

If you don’t have time to visit Jeju, this is a nice alternative.
