The drive to Kouri island was pleasant but I found the beach rather disappointing (compared to Manza beach). The island felt a little gimmicky, with the tower as a must-see. Nice views yes but a little too touristy. If you have another entire day to...More

Small island with few decent attractions. The best would be Ocean Tower, apart from it, few beaches on south and north side. Perfect place to spend a day outdoors.

You can walk on the beach and enjoy the nice scenery on Kouri Island. Wearing sandals or slippers will be convenient for you to walk along the seaside.

Kouri island is a very small island that you could drive around within 10 minutes, I went there for lunch but the beach seems too busy for me. If you want a quiet escape, would suggest some quiet beaches around Nakijin... More
